I had a call in January from the hospital, advising they had found abnormal cells when I had my routine gastroscopy in December. I was diagnosed with Barratt's Oesophagus 8 years ago and this is the first time they have found an abnormality. The said they will rescope in June, and I am booked in for 30th. I am now getting paranoid about what they will find. I think I can feel a strange feeling in my tummy around the area the oesophagus joins the stomach. I'm not sure if I'm imagining it or not. The hospital said not to worry (ha ha!!!), but as the time for the rescope is nearly here I am getting myself really worked up. They said they can't give me anything to calm me down and I will just have the normal sedation, which, to be honest, doesn't kick in until after I get home (I think the adrenaline I produce kills it). Has anyone else been in this position and if so, how did you cope in the run-up to the scope?
