This Wednesday i did my endoscopy, last time was in the 80's as i had panic attacks and great fear of doing it as i thought it would be the same.
Actually it went very well, the tube was so much thinner than in the 80's, like half the size and the doctor told me he done this over 1000 times in the last year, they asked me if i wanted sedation to make me sleep and calm down but i said no as i didn't think it would be such a big deal.
Anyway, he did it well and i felt it was a big difference from when i did it in the 80's.
The results was positive, i had no soars in my stomach and there was some healed spots and he also noticed i had some slight
opening in my valve which causes the acid to come back, also he beleived i had Hernia but needed to do a CT scan of my lungs and stomach to see how the stomach is positioned as he had hard time diagnosing it.
I also said I couldn't tolerate any of the meds i've taken but he told me there is always one you can tolerate, he suggested Lanzoprazole as i couldn't tolerate eOmeprazole or Omeprazole or Ranitidin.
This must be great news as i not taken much meds and by body has healed itself by losing weight fast and eating small portions of food and elevating the bed with lots of excersize every day powerwalking.
I have not taken any meds since i was at my GI doctor but may start tomorrow as i have some pain in my shoulder and and breasts when i bend my body along with my soar tongue and throat that comes and go.
I asked my ordinary doctor about
the pain i get and she suggested to take a NSAID meds, i commented her that NSAID is not good to take with GERD problems as it irritates the stomach lining, Ah yes she said. What kind of doctor is that? it seems i know more than her, not the first time i have to lecture her and she replies with the same comments as earlier.
