Endoscopy

Before today I have had two endoscopies - believe me when I tell you that being semi-conscious while someone rams a tube down your throat is not a pleasant experience. Happily the doctor who performed the 3rd one today is not like the other two. He listened to my concerns and then made quite sure I was unaware of the procedure.

All of this is to follow up on the diagnosis I received two years ago re the oesphageal dismotility and acid reflux. Well, specifically to check whether or not there I have eosinophilic oesophagitis . A biopsy is the only way to tell, hence today's procedure. The good news is that there is no sign of Barrett's oesophagus which is great news. In fact, everything looks normal as far as the eye can tell.
