Hi everyone. After weeks of worry and anxiety today was the day for my endoscopy. I was very nervous but the staff at the unit were fantastic and put me at ease. Didn't get the lovely sleep I was expecting with the sedation but on the whole the procedure was bearable and over in minutes.
Anyway, diagnoses was Duodenitis and mild gastritis in the stomach. I also tested positive for helicobactor for which I need to see my GP for teatment. My oesophogas was NORMAL!! So, I am obviously relieved but will be happier once I have seen my GP to see where we go from here.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone here for the support you have given me-an extremely distressed newbie who a few weeks ago could see nothing but the worst case scenario! You gave me the help and reassuarance that I could not get anywhere else and I thank you for that and wish you all well. Thankyou.
