It's been 6 days since endoscopy and still can't swallow anything except liquids.

Posted , 1 user is following.

Had a really bad reaction to the endoscopy and dilation with terrible back pain. I spent 2 days in the hospital , had tests and tests and was told nothing. I went to my family doctor when I got home and he said the back pain was from reflux and the swallowing problem was due to the throat being irritated from the procedure. The tests showed no problems. He put me on Sucralfate, Famotidine and Pantoprazole. I can only drink Boost, juices and water. I've lost a lot of weight that I can't afford to lose. Has anyone else had this severe of a reaction? I'm becoming very depressed as this has been going on way too long.
