So I had my colonoscopy and endoscopy both on Thursday. If anyone is getting the procedure and worried about
it here is my experience. For me it was a minor inconvenience with the prep and I have absolutely no recollection of the actual procedure. I had what was called "moderate sedation." I was back to working on the house with just an hour or so of a nap. It was really a zero on the big deal scale with no residual discomfort of any type.
The only thing the Dr has reported so far is minor inflammation in the lower esophagus with evidence of infection. He found a few of what he calls plaques. Looks like white spots on the photos. He sent it off for evaluation and expects it to be a virus or fungus. Yuck! He does not seem to be too concerned and told me to keep taking the Protonix for 6 week and come back in to see him.
I am a little worried about
what the results will mean for me. I have been generally symptom free with an occasional tums or two. I pretreat for any runs with two tums.
Should I just follow instructions and take the Protonix for the 6 weeks even if I am feeling well? Im really an anti PPI person but...
