well, i'm back home from my EGD this morning and the procedure
and results all were fine! i can't remember who was up next for
the scope, barb or heidi? but i know there was a lot of worry -
i have to say i remember NOTHING, ZERO after he gave me the
versed. they said they would need me awake to help with the
first swallow, which i dreaded, but if i was awake then i don't
know it! it was quick and easy and i was out of there and going
back home in about 2 hours total time. so the upshot is good, too,
mostly, that he found sorta nothing. he said it's definitely acid
reflux but also probably a "spastic esophagus" - that sounds about
par for something that i would have! so new meds, probably, either
klonopin, which i understand is originally prescribed for epileptics,
or amytriptiline, which i've tried before and didn't feel very good
on. anyone else tried either of these?
just wanted to encourage whoever is next!
and i'm headed to mayo on monday for a wednesday appointment.
now i've had this test, i hope that's less i'll have to have done
there. although may have another heart cath there, we'll see...
