has anyone had a TNE ? I was supposed to see a swallowing specialist today, but after waiting over 1 hour, I had to leave because my daughter's school was having a holiday concert--so I am going back for a consultation tomorrow. I know it is quick and painless according to the brochure, but I would like to know how it really is. I am hoping to avoid another endoscopy as I just can not lose so much time on this GERD/LPR issue. My chest feels like there is a balloon inside it ready to pop and I just want to know if the esophagitis is back and if I need to tweak my meds or something. It seems as though none of the doctors seem to think this is cardiac given the results of my stress test, echo , ekg and holter monitor. This is driving me nuts!
