I had another endoscopy this morning, to follow up on the one done in the hospital before Thanksgiving when I had an ulcer in my esophagus. Since that time, I have been on Prevacid to reduce acid in my stomach, and I have not had any more episodes of spasms or any other symptoms. The procedure went fine this morning, but apparently the tube caused a small tear in the esophagus, so I have quite a sore throat right now. I have to be on a liquid/soft food diet for 7 days, plus take a whole armful of meds! I really hate that the doctor comes and talks to you and gives all these instructions when you are just waking up from anesthesia! I was so groggy, I hardly remember what he said. Mark was there, and he didn't WRITE anything down ( he's a guy ) but remembers... kind of.....what the instructions were. GEESH. So he's off right now to get my 5 prescriptions filled. I expect the doctor's office will be calling in the next day or so to follow up, and then I can ask again what I'm supposed to do. I know the doc said he wanted to see me again in ____ weeks - Mark says maybe 6, maybe 3?
