Not sure if this is in the right section...anyway I had an endoscopy on Friday and I've never felt pain like it. I was under sedation but don't believe it worked. The nurse who put my line in said 'I don't know if that will work but they can do it when you get there'. I also had the throat spray. I was gagging all the way through it and felt everything. This endoscopy was to remove gallstones from the gallbladder. Afterwards I was in agony. I felt like I had been in a car crash. Couldn't sit up, lie on my side or even move. The nurse gave me paracetamol which did nothing. She then gave me codine which did nothing then morphine. I was discharged from hospital yesterday and I'm still in a lot of pain. I find it hard to move sit up and it hurts if I inhale. I had a c section 4 weeks ago and that was far less painful than this.
In the hospital they scanned me as they thought they might have perforated the diaphragm the scan came back clear. The doctor didn't give me any other explanation and sent me home. Has anyone else had experience of this?
I really don't want to go back to the same ward/ hospital where I had the procedure.
