Has anyone had this procedure? I've just been given an appointment but the description sounded so horrendous that I can't face it and have cancelled. I have none of the symptoms it's supposed to investigate – my consultant wanted to find out if I have silent reflux and if that caused the (irreversible) damage to my oesophagus. But I don't want to take the drugs he proposed (PPIs) (and he doesn't want to prescribe them either) to cure the reflux (which I don't have!) so I don't see the point in all this investigation.
Anyone out there had manometry? Was it really awful?? Any other thoughts re its usefulness?
