My throat and chest/esophagus is really sore 6 days after endoscopy?

Posted , 6 users are following.

hello, i had an endoscopy last week and although they said it's normal for my throat to be sore they didn't say anything about my chest or esophagus hurting. i have this constant sensation like when you dry-swallow a really big pill or something that's just too big, almost like a slight obstruction?

it hurts when i eat or drink water 😕 they did take biopsies but i've had this done before and i felt perfectly fine after so i'm just concerned as to why i'm so sore this time around. doctor said to give it another week? i'm just scared they messed me up. no blood or anything anywhere

    hi andrew, i had 3 endescopies over the past few years and the first 2 were fine apart from barretts oesaphagus. however, after the 3rd one i felt different in that i had a full feeling in my stomach and my appetite went downhill. i also remember i had a choking feeling when they put the tube down. im convinced to this day thay did something to my stomach that resulted in loss of appetite. i mentioned this to my doctors but thay said its nothing to do with biopsy. im on PPI for acid since 2013 on repeat prescription which i find is too long. but i think ghey just write prescriptions just to cover their tracks. meantime my appetite i not great and medics seem to just pass it off. i hopd you find answers and get sorted. best of luck.

      I had a similar experience with the dry pill swallowing feeling. Both in my chest and back. I went to hospital for a scan, and they said, "No bleeding, just take some tylenol" Problem is, I couldn't swallow pills...so I've been crushing them into yogurt. It's been over 10 days, and I still have chest pain, and little to no appetite. On a brighter note, it is getting a bit better, but I'm going to return to my GP and make sure there is no infection from the biopsies. When I called the surgeons office, they told me this isn't normal, but it's nothing they did on their end. They should really warn people about possible side effects. It's worse to think something is seriously wrong. My anxiety was through the roof, and it still is, as I'm still experiencing chest discomfort. Not sure If this helps, but just wanted to say, you're not alone in this.
