Woah!! That's shocking, I've had 3 mannometries at Wythenshawe. I can't understand why they say they don't do them!!! I did have one at Hope when I was a child but I was under Stepping Hill then.
When you go to your next appointment tell the nurse when you arrive that you want to see the consultant himself. That's what I do
Did you get any scores from your mannometries today? I was told my demeester was 26 and my Los pressure was 3mmHg and also I didn't have very good contrations in my oesophagus. I could see that on the screen.
So all that got me my Nissen in January this year :-D I'm doing really well, reflux has gone, Asthma has gone, I'm off Nexium so all my IBS symptoms have gone, I still get pain, mostly in my back and chest but I'm very happy, it was definitely the best thing I have ever done.
Who is your surgeon and GI?
My surgeon is an amazing man and definitely one of my heroes ;-) He could read me like a book and was very kind and understanding and when I had problems he was very quick to try and sort them out
I'm sorry you have problems with endoscopes, in my opinion after having many of them, the surgeons are better at them than the GIs.
