I had a Endoscopy today to band the varices from having a bad liver. When I came out of the exam and woke up, I had terrible chest pain that radiated to the back. They did an ekg immediately and it came back normal. The GI doctor came by to see me and said some chest pain would be normal because of the banding. Has anyone else heard about chest pain being normal? I am now laying in bed trying to find a position that doesn't bring me to tears. The chest pain is incredible and I am having a hard time breathing. So much pain right now and don't know what to do. I've taken prilosec as well as a couple pepcid but the tightness around my chest just seems to be sticking around. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I am in tears right now.
