Hi I had a barium swallow in feb after a failed endoscoy in jan. Dr said results normal. My symptoms are no better and I am booked for another endoscopy next week. My question is...how likely is it that the barium swallow missed something? The dr wants to take a biopsy to test for coeliac if he can (the sedation didn't work last time ) I am very very nervous after what happened last time
I am going in to have the endoscopy - hopefully ! - next Friday. The dr plans to take biopsies for coeliac (my mum has it) and h pylori I imagine, but I will ask him. Just hope I manage to cope with it this time I think back in jan they were worried about an ulcer and they put me on one parasols for 2 weeks but as I understand it if I do, I need ABs? Is that right? I'm very sorry about your mum x
I am having sedation! I have asked for horse tranquilliser!
No idea why it didn't work last time I had midazolam. But it had no/minimal effect on me. So I am pretty anxious. Am having this one at a private hospital though, not NHS. No idea if that means the sensation will be better? <am covered under Dhs work insurance>
