Basically my problem is severe heartburn & cough. Since I already have asthma-caused COPD, the issue gets complicated but the cough has gotten worse as the heartburn has worsened. Leading up to the endoscopy, I have suspected that my daily glass of red wine (or glass & a half!) has had a hand in this & sincelstg week I have abstained & the heartburn is MUCH better! No TUMS in over 24 hours whereas before, they had been a daily mainstay!
I will be back in touch with my doctor tomorrow, I think, & will await the path reports from the procedure. I suspect that the surgeon took tissue samples since there are path reports!
I just hope this resolves well. I already have glaucoma, a extremely overactive bladder, on top of COPD so I don't need something lethal in my throat!
Thank you for the reply!
