So here's a update from Tuesday 5th Sept Gastroscopy.
The procedure went well, I loved being under General Anaesthetic!! I knew nothing about anything & when I came round in my room
I asked the nurse If I could take some propofol home as it's brilliant !!! Ha!
The Gastroenterologist Found some *inflammation* in my oesophagus. & took a few Biopsies & one punch Biopsy from my stomach lining. Testing for H. pylori & cell culture. Other than that it was normal.
I have a follow up appointment on the 28 September to discuss what the next step is. - possible Colonoscopy
He has mentioned Crohn's disease as I was once ANCA positive, which was once thought to be Vasculitis but it can also have those antibodies in IBD too! So confusing.
I had a lovely time at the winfield hospital. Treated beautifully & went home to sleep & still recovering.
My resting heart rate rocketed to 140bpm. I wasn't allowed home until it had stabilised. They assumed it was abnormal but as it's been a somewhat regular problem for me they said it needs to be investigated properly with a cardiologist. So that's next on the list.
