Hi all.

Im gonna sound wingey.

Im two days away from PH and Manometry. I can only have gaviscon today and nothing tomorrow.

Im a bit anxious as dont wish to get bad again as I can already feel I didnt have meds this morning.

How did u cope with it?

I know it needs to be done and its important.

    Tomorrow eat only soft food like mashed potatoes that your stomach can easily digest. When I feel sick I stay on light food and avoid food that causes indigestion.

    Hi Katerina

    Don't worry, you will be fine, I had it done last June, I felt great for a couple of months after coming off ppi, but now I'm back suffering again, good luck

      Hi. Had my manometry done this morning.

      I managed it ok. I didnt gagged at all.

      Now sitting at home with the PH probe down me stuffing my face.

      Well done, the worst is over, you will feel a huge sense of relief tomorrow when they take out the tube, you won't feel a thing

    I'm in same situation having mine next Wednesday so have to stop Nexium Friday and then Gaviscon on Sunday. I'm just gonna stick to food that I know don't cause too much damage or problems. 

    Over and done that's what I want. 

    Had my endoscopy 2 weeks ago and that was pretty unpleasant especially as I decided to brave it without sedation, wouldn't again though!

      I stopped nexium 7days prior as my letter said.

      I knew id be ill if i just stop everything.

      My gastro said i could go on ranitidine once i stopped nexium.

      Stop ranitidine 2days before procedure. 1day gaviscon. Dy before testing nothing and the sane follows through until test it over.

      It dudnt hurt.

      I didnt gag either.

      Manometry probe is thicker but bareable for 15mins orocedure.

      Ph probe us very thin. I can barely feel it.

      Ideally u should eat what ud eat if u were healthy and didnt have im assuming acid reflux.

      They want u to be symptomatic. It helps them to get to the cause of issues.

      Ive already had coffee, tea, cheese sandwich, salt and vinegar crisps. I will have curry and wine tonight.
