  1. Had my endoscopy done 🙂 took 30 mins trying to get needles into my veins for sedation, 3rd attempt they got blood, then the trainee endoscopist forgot to administer sedation anyway, he then got the tube stuck in my gullet so the senior doctor took over, more painful than expected but eventually got there, and had some colon tissue taken for biopsy. Confirmed sliding hiatus hernia, so going to see the specialist in a few weeks for the biopsy results and next step, hopefully just a diet change and acid reducers instead of keyhole surgery. At least I know now why I am sick a lot and have constant ab/chest pains

      EE, I am very sorry to hear about your awful time having your endoscopy clinic.  I hope that that you won't need to have keyhole surgery and that the treatment and diet change will be beneficial.

      Thanks, the hospital gave me a list of things things I should be eating to help with the condition as well as what I should avoid, but said it depends on each person how their body digests food, so I need to experiment a bit to find out what is best for me 🙂 Have another round of fasting blood tests tomorrow which should reach the specialist within the middle of next week, hoping for good results!
