Hi guys, me again
So, this morning, had my latest visit to the doctor...she examined my stomach, checked my blood results and my symptoms and blood pressure....told me that she is certain I have nothing serious wrong with me, no serious illness or cancer....endoscopy will help me understand and accept that it is IBS, also, a touch of Gastronitis which is common with IBS sufferers....and we can take the best course of action in terms of medication. Now, yes the doctor all but ruling out anything serious, it does make my symptoms which is very surely now IBS confirmed less scary (still not nice) but I can be positive, or work on being positive that I am safe and what is happening is not killing me....but having an Endoscopy is scary on its own and is causing me some anxiety. The doctor gave me Xanax to help reduce those intense anxieties....so I have 6 days before I can have my edoscopy and results which I am 97% sure will come back to show nothing but some Gastronitis....any of you guys had Endoscopy before? Maybe some advice of how to handle it? I am scared of my Gag reflex and I dont want sedation....any tips of how to prepare are most welcome....
And I know the doctor expects to find nothing in my stomach....I am still scared of the 'what if'' anxious thought...something I will have to work on over the next 6 days...any advice would be good about this also..
