well, my endoscopy came out fine but he wants to do another test called a gastric emptying test because I had food in my stomach after fasting.  ugh   I don't want to take the radioactive(?) isotope saline in my food!  i'm sure i'll be anxious it will make me sick or my heart race or something stupid. 
has anyone had that???

I had that test done last year and it was easy and painless. You follow their instructions leading up to it and then all I had to do when I got to my test was eat a radioactive egg. Diagnostic tests like these are good to do because they give your doctors productive information that can rule out or lean towards different things that they had no way to know for sure without having the test done.
