Endoscopy & Biopsy......feedback?

Recommended Posts

I'm having endoscopy and biopsy day after tomorrow and I'm a little nervous. Anyone that has already had this done that can offer some positive reinforcement? I would really appreciate it!

I had one in 2007 and it was fine. I had no problems with the anesthesia (sedation) and aside from being a bit sleepy when I woke up, I felt fine. Thinking positive thoughts for you!

The thought of it is much worse than the reality. You won't feel or remember a thing and the only likely after effect may be a slight sore throat.

It is pretty easy, you don't remember a thing. The worst part is when they spray the cetacain(? sp) in the back of your throat to numb it. It tastes nasty. But after that you are in la la land and the next thing you remember is waking up. I just had my second one yesterday.
