Well... yesterday I had my second endoscopy performed. My GI doctor wanted to check up on my small intestine to see how its healing, as well as check my esophagus to rule out eosinophilic esophagitis. He took multiple biopsies and said my SI looked atrophied but otherwise I looked good.
The combination of versed and demerol is powerful and I did not remember much of the discharge except for the fact that I Don't think I was ready to be discharged I was so out of it. But I slept it off and now I'm fine. The lidocaine prep that i had to gargle was absolutely disgusting! I do not remember having to do that the first go around... blegh!
Today I got a phone call from the scheduling nurse saying my doctor ordered a hydrogen breath test. I do not recall that being discussed at discharge (no surprise I was so out of it) but neither does my husband. So anyways, based on our discussion I guess he is looking for SIBO.
Everything I have read thus far says antiobiotics, probiotics, low FODMAP or SCD diet to manage this.
I am guarded about this whole thing. On one hand maybe this will finally solve my ongoing symptoms but on the other hand seriously?! another thing!!?
Really really really really tired of being sick and tired. Did I mention I turn 30 next month? I feel like I should be in retirement.
