    endoscopy today !!!!!

    Hi all
    Well!! I've had my endoscopy today - it was'nt pleasant, but it was quick. I felt myself start to panic a bit when the throat spray numbed my throat and I felt I could'nt swallow and again when the scope went into my stomach and made me feel sick aghhhhhhh.
    Anyway, the good news is, I dont have anything serious (surprise, surprise). He told me I have oesophegitis caused by acid splashing up from the stomach and causing the oesophegus to be inflamed, I also have a hiatus hernia which is very common. He told me it probably wont go away, but can be controlled with medication and diet.
    Ah well!!! at least I know now

    Really pleased that all went well and that you can now get some treatment and put this worry to bed.

    Hi Judi. Glad things have turned out OK I'm due to have one in 3 weeks time and still debating whether to be sedated or not. I'm really worried about the gagging
