I had my Gastroscopy yesterday at long last. I decided not to have sedation, as I wanted to know what was going on. I was nervous but they were really lovely to me. I think they appreciate it, as your not taking up their time after, and you can just walk out. It is of course up to the individual. I thought I at least would have a Hiatus Hernia, after the discomfort before I started taking the medication, and altering my diet. There was no Cancer she said (the Gastrolagist) no Hiatus Hernia, no Barrets. So I asked why all the discomfort, she said some people have this tendency to get Reflux. She took four biopsies, apparently this is done whenever someone has problems of swallowing. I have to go back and have a test on my acid count. I have lost just over a stone since it all started, I sort of lost my appetite, I could consume a box of chocolates in the past, the fun has gone out of food for me. I was just over 9 st 3lb now I am 8 st 1lb.
