Hi everyone. I made a post a few weeks ago about going to A&E with abdominal pain. I had blood tests done at the time which revealed high liver enzymes. I went to an outpatient appointment yesterday where I spoke to a consultant for about 10 minutes. He asked a few questions and sent me for another blood test. He has given me a prescription for omeprazole which is a drug that reduces gastric acid production. He is also sending me for a "camera" exam which apparently means an endoscopy. I have never had one of these before, though I am aware of what they are. The appointment for that is for next month. I am nervous as this will be the most invasive procedure I've had done so far. Do you need to be sedated before having it done? How painful is it?
