    Hi David, I do wish you the very best of luck and that the outsome is positive.  I think everyone is apprehensive when they are not quite sure what to expect.  I'm sure that everything will be done to reassure you and make you comfortable during the procedure.  Best wishes and good luck, Lizzy.

    Hi David,

    I have had one and it wasn't even uncomfortable! you will wonder what you were worried about. They sort of deaden things as they go.

      hey reg that's me home after the endoscopy, went fine, I opted for the sedation in the end and it was so mild as to be almost unnoticable! just a brief moments discomfort with slight gagging but all in all went fine. they've taken 4 biopsies to test and mentioned Barretts oesophagus, well I've got news for them, it's not Barretts, it's mine! cheesygrin my goodness, bronchietasis and barretts within a week......
