ANOTHER endoscopy :-(

So Thursday is looming when I go back in for another endoscopy, fingers crossed for no banding, I haven't experienced any bleeding for a while so I don't see why they should....

I have to say though, its a tough call between endoscopies and bone marrow biopsies as to which is the worst...I wouldn't with either of them on anyone.

Please tell me the endoscopies stop after transplant....

Oh, I always go for sedation. Its the oxygen up my nose I find that makes me feel sick - I wish I could have it without oxygen. The teams that have completed them are pretty good at making you feel comfortable, this will be number 17 in 3 year and 4 months....so far 28 varicies banded...

I hope you don't need anymore x

I can confirm no endoscopies after transplant. Before transplant I probably had 6 over a 15 year period, never needed banding and I think a number of them were for coeliac disease. 17 is crazy, no wonder you're sick of them.

I was taking some drug usually used for blood pressure, name began with a p, but now forgotten. I did have varices but never needed banding.
