    I was very uncomfortable for a couple of days after, like I couldn't have hot drinks and I could feel food going down. I also felt very raw, but I had gastritis and oesophagitis so I think the scope irritated the inflammation for a bit. Also my throat ached and felt weird. But the effects went away before the week was up. Serious problems from a scope are very rare and are usually picked up by the camera if they happen.

    Have you had your scope yet or do you have your appointment coming up?

    Hello Joseph,

    Have you recently had an endoscopy? If so, are you noticing bleeding of any kind? Endoscopy can cause bleeding, perforation and pancreatitis.

      hi cindy, i last had an endescopy in oct2018. that was my 3rd one in 6 years. after the first 2 i was fine a day or so later and eating normal etc, however after the most recent one in 2016 i felt completely different and since then my appetite is very poor i get full very easy and i just feel that they may have damaged or did something wrong during the last endescopy. i do have another on in a couple of weeks time and had a recent contrast stomach scan 2 weeks ago where i think they may have come accross something which could be one if the conditions you mentioned. i have also to stop taking my PPIs 14 days before my endescopy which i find a little strange. i never had to stop taking these meds before my previous endescopies. anyone else have similar issues after endescopies?

    Hi Joseph

    It is quite the norm that they request you stop taking ppi's before a scope. They do take a small sample of your stomach lining to go to the lab. Have you had your results yet??
