First time posting in the heartburn section. My 7 1/2 year old son is going to have an endoscopy and a ph probe next week. I have experienced an endoscopy myself and know there is not much to it, but the ph probe (24 hours) sounds like it might be much harder to deal with.
I would be grateful for any advice because right now I have no idea what to expect. I guess I am most concerned about how much discomfort to expect. I know that what an adult experiences might differ from a child's experience but all information is very welcome.
Thanks in advance.
