After using heavy antibiotics for Hpylori I developed severe upper stomach pain as a reaction. After only second day of antibiotics I got severe stomach pain but I continued to complete the course which nearly killed me.
Now even after 4 months I am still in the same pain I cant walk or do even slight movements without aggravating my pain I dont know what have antibiotics done to me. Doctor diagnosed it as gastritis because of antibiotics I believe but the only way to be sure is Endoscopy.
I am really scared of Endoscopy (sedation is not an option). There are primary two main concern:
1) Does the tube cause irritation or damage to the stomach surface when sliding and entering stomach? I am already in too much pain and cant afford any irritation or damage to my stomach.
2) How is disinfection performed on the instrument. Docs perform numbers of endoscopy each day how do they disinfect the tube. Can a person be infected through another person's bacterial remains on the tube?
