Pain After Endoscopy

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had my endoscopy on July 29th with biopsies and tonight I have had pain (worse than usual) in the upper abdomen. I shouldn't have pain after the biopsy, should I? I didn't think to ask the GI doctor about pain from the biopsy. It could also be the gluten. I've had it with eating gluten for two months. I think my intestines have had enough. I took some Pepto-Bismol and it really helped. Back to gluten free now. I see the doctor next week for the results. The nurse showed me a picture of my intestine but the doctor said we have to wait for the biopsy.

Yes, I had a sore throat also for a couple of days. I never read any post here about anyone having a sore belly after it but I guess it could happen.

You could feel the biopsies? What kind of sedation did you have?

I am glad the Pepto helped it was what I used to. I had pain also however I didn't do a gluten challenge for the last one but had a nasty reaction to the prep. Doc gave me Prilosec cause he found lots of irritation but since I had no pain at all before the procedure I decided to give the pepto a try first. If you still have to take the pepto for more than a few more days I would check with the doctor. Note - the pepto can make your stool black if you are taking it frequently. But if you notice black stool and you have stopped the pepto or if you start to run a fever do call your doctor.

Okay, thanks for the info. My stomach is a little sore, but definitely is better. I figure I'll remember today August 1st as the start of my gluten-free lifestyle. I read a lot of your posts and I know you suggest to start eating simple and that's what I'm going to do.

How long did you have the pain after the procedure?

I had a lot of belly pain after my endoscopy. They blow air into your belly to be able to see the lining of your stomach better and so your belly may feel very distended, tight and sore. It took a couple days for me to start feeling better. Going gluten-free will also help :)

Good luck,

For me it was just a few days and it never reappeared.

I felt a kind of tugging sensation and it felt tender immdiatley they took it,i think i must have had very little saliva that day cause the whole procedure seemed to be dry and tuggy in my pipes (for want of a better description :huh: ) the area of the biopsies felt a little tender for days after.I am still uncomfortabe today actually and its four days ago now,i can still feel the area in my throat that was made sore.
