Is this normal?

Posted , 4 users are following.


I was wondering if someone could help me. Yesterday I had and upper endoscopy at about 12pm yesterday afternoon. Everything went fine, doctors said everything looked normal and was able to go straight away. Last night I woke up with quite painful low abdominal pain which seemed like trapped wind. I know this is fairly normal as they pump air into your stomach. However it is 5pm the next day and I've still got very low abdominal pain bubbling around but I can't pass wind or make any bowel movements to realease this. Is this normal?

    When I had mine done I felt bloated for a day or two after , also had pain where they did the biopsy at. I'd give it a few days but if it gets bad just call your doctor.

    You may find sipping plain carbonated water may help you release the gas.
