Finally had the endoscopy today, I'd decided no sedation..... Well that won't be happening again. Stupidly I assumed it would be like a small wire but no hosepipe more like!
Anyway I managed only cos I'm pretty good at mind over matter stuff and doctor wasngreat and nurses lovely at relaxing me and keep chatting to me. But it was not pleasant and if I ever have to have one again I will definitely opt for sedation and plenty of it! Of course didn't help as still can't breathe too well out of my left nostril following the sinus surgery a month ago.
Good news is no hernia and no erosion so that's a great sign. Manotry and gut thing next week to look forward to but am assured it's nowhere near as bad as the endoscopy.
