Basically, the info you have re the test is accurate - the stuff they spray is sort of like Chloroseptic, except worse! lol They inject the med.'s into your IV and you are asleep til it's over and they wheel you back to your room/cubicle and you'll be home in a couple of hours from there!
I went shopping at WallyWorld right after I had mine done. So no real after effects.
The endoscopy shows several things, inflammation of the esophagus, the stomach lining, ulcers, Barrett's esophagus and cancer. If there are any areas that look suspicious they will do biopsies. This is just an extra precaution to make sure all is normal
When are you having yours done? Let us know, okay?!
Good luck and best wishes,
Hugs, Teri :)
