Hope everyone is doing well during the look down? It’s never easy being at home for so long.
I booked an appointment to see my usual gp but was asked if I didn’t mind who I saw? I chose to see a new one and I guess I was lucky to get him?!
He referred me to have an endoscopy as a potential cancer patient though he’s sure it’s not the case; he wanted to make sure because of my symptoms are quite aligned with the cancer symptoms. I’m pretty sure myself I don’t but I’ve lost nearly less than a stone in a matter of 7 months.
He questioned if I had an eating disorder because my BMI is dangerously low. I said some one who has really terrible unexplained reflux issues is bound to not be able to keep food down. I do vomit as a result of endless burping, etc. It’s not been easy to eat when I’m in constant pain either and so it has led me down the cancer route so I can be checked out.
I’m not really worried about it yet until I get the procedure done-I’m more concerned about entering a hospital during an pandemic!
One thing I know for sure now since I got some clarification from my gp is that anything from your stomach coming back up into your mouth is acidic! Regardless of what my ph test results were, what my previous gp said or what the consultant said - it’s rubbish!
Have a good weekend. Thank
