    had my last endoscopy

    Well i arrived at the hospital 8.30am felt a bit of anxiety creeping in.The nice nurse did my bloods ect,explained the procedure yet again lol(IVE HAD 3 DONE).Paul waited with me incase i did a bunk out the nearest door,and he warned the nurses.I watched the clock ticking away it got to 10am they took me,and i was out by 10.15 I was back home by 11.30 having a well earned cuppa.I got my results there and then which was also great as im not good at waiting.And the results are a HUGE OESOPHAGUS HIATUS HERNIA. he said he had never seen one that big lol
    So this explains the vomiting,the pain,the huge belly,and the feeling of a heart attack.I AM SO HAPPY I FINALLY KNOW THE ANSWER

    Glad you got through the endoscopy okay. You will be glad you now have a diagnosis and can now get some treatment. Knowing what's wrong is reassurance in itself. Take care.

    Hi Nic So pleased that you know what this is now and can get some help at last. Does this mean an Op?

    Hang in there Nic. I would think the nausea would probably be a mixture of anxiety and tiredness as that was a big day for you. There will be all sorts of emotions to deal with because as well as the relief of finding out, there is also more to do to put it right.I hope they get on with it soon so you can put this behind you.
