    Endoscopy in 3 days..Help plz!

    What's the chances of life threatening complications? I've read a lot of horror story's about these endoscopys,I've convinced myself im gonna die from one and I'm almost thinking of pulling out but I don't want to as I've waited months for this to come,I also had a fundop (surgical procedure for gerd) in 2011 will this higher the chances of complications? I'm going on Wednesday morning?

    Awww I do not know the answers but why not give the unit you will be attending a call and explain how anxious you are feeling. They will see people all the time who are anxious.

    I had an ogd endoscopy a couple of months ago as I always worry about being late was 1.5 hours early, saw loads of people going in and having it done, all came out okay including me. :-)

    Bye for now.

    Had one at the beginning of the year and honestly it's nothing to worry about and the risks are negligible. You'll be fine

    Thanks for the replies, well I went through with it and it was possibly the worst experience of my life it was horrendous, I retched all the way through and tbh I think I'm suffering from PTS, Unless it's absolutely necessary I won't be having it done again...

    I have had it done 3 times now & colonoscopy at the same time. My son in law has to have one every year & he has his without any sedation ! You will be fine

    Sorry just seen that you have now had it done ! Sorry that you had a bad experience - did you not have sedation ? I always have & didn't even know it had been done.

    Please for anyone else having this procedure whose anxiety is now through the roof because of your experience --- ask for sedation & its done without you feeling anything !!!!

    didn't have sedation because I was worried about aspiration,Once the camera was down I started retching a lot of fluid up and it was being suctioned out,I'm slightly worried now because since I had it done I've had a mild and persistent pain in my upper back and a strong a smell of blood at the back of my throat which comes and goes.
