So I had my endoscopy done yesterday. The procedure itself went very well but he found more things wrong with me. He took several biopsies throughout my esophagus and found out that my esophagus looked worse from the December scope. He also seen food in my stomach which he said wasn't good considering I followed doctors orders not to est or drink after midnight the night before.

I still dont know much of the details but he said I needed a Gastric Emptying Study. Which has been schedule for a week from now. If it shows I have a sluggish stomach hes planning on sending me to a place to have a a gastric emptying study done. Not looking forward ot it at all

He said if my stomach is sluggish i'll need a gastric bypass to fix the bad areas of my stomach and will in turning thy will fix my hernia and esophagus.

I just wanna curl up under a bridge and cry.

Oh, I feel so bad for you. What a worry! I hope you can find some distraction until you get the study done.
