Good Evening, I have been on Nexium for the past 17-18 years. I have been dealing with the spasms and feeling everything I eat and drink gets stuck in my throat for the past 2 months. I don't sleep well for this reason. I had a EDG & Bravo done and went for the results yesterday. I do not have any tumors or precancer. The Dr suggest I have a manometry done, I informed him that I know that I cannot handle that being done, so I will have a Upper GI in the next few days. I have a trip planned in April, my co-worker will be on vacation the 2nd week of May, therefore I am looking at having it done the middle of May. I am glad that I found this site to read positive and encouraging comments. I am a little scared.
Hi and welcome, I am very new to this site as well and when the letter came through confirming my hospital date I was really nervous. Work has been going really badly for me recently, lots of changes and it has even brought me to tears this week several times until I told my boss enough is enough and they need to stop messing me about
. To cut a long story short, in a funny way that has been very good at keeping my mind off the surgery. I got the phone call earlier this week saying my surgeon has to bring my slot forward to next Tuesday and even that didn't play on my mind because I was stressing about
My manometry was not pleasant at all, but no worse than the endoscopy (I assume you have had one of these?) I just zoned out, it made me wretch a little bit but in exactly the same way as the endoscopy did. What do you think is stopping you handling it?
