Just had my Endoscpoy yesterday and the swallowing of the camera was easy as the guy just rams it in anyway, the whole thing lasted maybe 45 seconds max, he shoved it down, yanked it round and pulled it out, he was not gentle. I had this at a private hospital before with no throat spray and that was very gentle compared to this one, the throat spray did nothing apart from making it almost impossible to swallow for an hour afterwards, every time I tried to swallow my saliva I thought my throat was going to not open again, all in all the worse 30 secs of my life followed by the worse choking of my life. My advise, get sedated or go private.

I can feel the pain of you choking. It happens to me a lot especially when we have visitors, or if we are out for a meal. takes me ages to eat my food because Of choking.

I have had the same procedure you have had and I opted to be sedated.
Hope your result is ok lifeofbrian.

Yeah, I forgot to mention, all is normal. I also suffer from very bad swallowing problems in general, especially when at someone else's house, or even worse,e out to dinner.
