Dear Friends,

I just want to update of my Manometry & 24-hour pH monitoring.

Today at 09:45 am I have seen by the Doctor who explained me the Manometry & 24-hour pH monitoring, he used a spray in my throat and noise, he than put the cable of Manometry on me, I did not felt well, he took it and said if you can't do it than we have to make appointment for to do Bravo Capsule, I said nooooooooooo, in your dreams, put that stick back in my noise, it was alright than yahoooooooo, I Was than told not to swallow saliva for 10 sec, he than give me water to put it in my mouth but not to drink it until he tells me, every 10 sec I had to drink water and swallow it only once, Finished............ He than put 24-hour pH monitoring, it was easy and smaller size, he explained me afterwards how to use 24-hour pH monitoring, so easy. He said you can go home now enjoy your appetite food huhahha, he was scarry, jk. He himself will measure my Manometry & 24-hour pH monitoring, so for today he will measure my Manometry and for 24-hour pH monitoring who knows when.

He also strongly advised not to eat something that would make worse, I said ok please don't kill me! ok doky.

I am actually eating now, its mash Potatoes with milk mixed. First you get discomfort for 3 sec and than you can eat well without any discomfort at all. I do get some weird signal in my noise, like heart beep but in 1 min or something, it might be the cable that sending information to the machine.

I have seen the 24 hour monitoring mentioned on here before. I did not have it done before my surgery. What exactly is the purpose of it?

I did have the manometry. I was petrified and even talked to my therapist about it. She mentioned deep breathing exercises. Well that all went out the window in the beginning of the procedure. Then the tech patted my hand and said you know you can breath, right? I was so wound up and was clenching my fists. After she said that I started focusing on my breathing as much as I could during the test. It helped some. My nose and throat were pretty sore afterwards (only lasted about 24 hours) even though she said it shouldn't be. I came home with quite the headache. It was definitely not anything I would want to do again...but realize it was important to have before surgery.

24-hour pH monitoring Test allows to measure the amount and severity of acidic stomach contents that maybe leaking-up from the stomach into the esophagus. These measurements are taken for a 24-hour period so that we can see what happens after your meals and at night when you are asleep. The test will also show us how well your symptoms are related to the presence of acid in your esophagus.
