Pinching pain after EGD biopsy

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello everyone! Today I had a EGD endoscopy and they also took some biopsy samples. It has been a few hours after the procedure and I'm having mild throat pain (which is normal right?) and sometimes pinching pain around the places where they took the biopsy? Is this pain normal? Should I be worried / is this serious?

Thank you!

    Hello. It's ok to feel that on the first day. Try not to eat heavy food that can disturb the stomach too much so please where the biopsy was taken can heal fast completely.

    Wait 1-2 days and it should go away.

    this is normal! And do not freak about the biopseys as they are always done. Doctors always do this as a precaution...Also it can take upto 2 weeks for the results. I had alot of symptoms and a Barium Swallow showed narrowing at the distal end of the esophagus and nothing more. Dont read Dr. Google as it's never good. lol. what the barium swallow didnt show was I have a sliding Hiatal Hernia and inflammation. All was good except I still get short of breath and pressure.. I learned to live with it. all other symptoms went away.. Good luck and dont freak.. this is all normal!

      Thank you! I am a medical student and even though I should be stress free because I know what is happening, I am still anxious when minor symptoms arise lol.

      Also, I'm having slight sternal discomfort, as if there is air trapped inside. This might also be due to the scope. Is this also normal?

    The sternum pressure is normal! Give it a few more days! For peace of mind you could call the doctors office and just run it past the PA.. After your results come back all symptoms will disappear. Just remember Anxiety makes this all worst! Eat soft food for a few days!
