Upper back pain after Endoscopy

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had an upper endoscopy under sedation yesterday. Was told all went well. 5 biopsy were taken, 3 from oesophagus and 2 from stomach.

After a couple of hours of being home i started having really bad pain in my back between my shoulder blades when swallowing. Today is a day after and still the same.

i cant even take a sip of water without pain and feeling like a golf ball is stuck in my back and chest.

i was told all i may feel is a slight sore throat.

Has anyone experienced this?
