Hello all, still groggy so bear with me.
My Endo seemed to go well, did not have the 2 things I fear most, but some suprises...here is word for word the report I got.
1. Z line visualized
2. The esophagus looks normal without inflammation, strictures or tumors.
3. Random biopsies from the lower esophagus to rule out esinophilic esophagitis (what is this?, do they always do this)
4. Multiple benign appearing gastric polyps
several biopsied. (Does this mean a chance I have stomach cancer?)
5. Normal Dueodenum.
Would like to hear from others who have had Endo's, if they have had the polyps, what the feedback from the docs was about it, and any one know if #3 is standard procedure.
One other weird thing, when I had the Endo in 2004 I had a hiatial hernia, since that time I have had several illnesses that cause me to vomit violently several times for days.....I would have thought the HH could only get worse...I dont know if anyone has read about the home remedy about drinking water to get a heavy stomach and then jumping down and landing flat to jolt the hernia back in place, I have done this about 10 times over the last 3 days, could it have worked?
THanks to all.
