    Upper endoscopy NO sedation: good experience! Some tips

    I just thought I'd post my experience with my upper endoscopy/gastroscopy today, as I'd been putting it off for ages due to the awful stories I read online. I think people are more inclined to post their experience if it's an unsually traumatic one, so I'd like to add another good story to balance

    Is it safe to have an Upper GI done if you have bone spurs pushing onto your esophagus resulting in narrowing? Barium swallow found 20% narrowing with bone spurs, so I am due for a spinal surgery soon. Wanted to have an Upper GI prior though and was wondering if it was safe with this.

    Has anyone had a colonoscopy and endoscopy done at the same time? I've never had a endoscopy done in my life and I am 59, am getting yearly colonscopies done due to reoccuring polyps.

    Upper GI

    I've never had an endoscope done although I am in my late 50s. I have a case of conspitation and bloating after I eat but I just figure that's from acid reflux so I never bothered to get one done. I also have a history of colon polyps but that's about it. Is an Upper GI something that should be done?...
