476246 tn?1418874514 What I want to ask is, if there were special reasons for that or if it is something one should routinely do after having had tx... and if yes, what is the reason for that. Was is an upper endoscopy or only colonscopy or the whole shizzle manizzle...? Thanks guys.
Avatar n tn Hello, I had an upper endoscopy while I was experience what later was found to be gallbladder problems. The endoscopy just gives the doctor a clear view of your esophagus, stomach, and upper part of your intestine and can test for unwanted bacteria and look for ulcers. Ultrasound or HIDA scans are mainly used to check suspected diseased gallbladders...and they cannot be seen on the endoscopy.
Avatar n tn Hi, I just underwent an upper endoscopy and biopsy yesterday for some stomach pain I've had for several years. I haven't gotten test results back but so far have been diagnosed with chronic gastritis and reflux esophagitis. My question is about how I am feeling right now. From all I've read there should be no pain or discomfort after the procedure but I feel like someone punched me in the stomach and I'm nauseated.
Avatar m tn My mom has an endoscopy this past week and she has been having severe pain from upper stomach up to her throat. She can hardly breath, eat and drink. She has been nauseated and even vomitted. It also hurts worse when she eats, drinks, and breaths.. When she swallow it feels like the food gets stuck right there at the sternum. Please help. What has gone wrong in the procedure. What should I do? What will I give her to ease her pain?
Avatar f tn For those of you that have had an upper endoscopy ... how did you feel afterwards? I had one yesterday with a biopsy of my stomach and esophagus and I don't feel so well today. I have some discomfort in my throat (feels like swelling) and some pain below my rib cage. Thanks for any info ... I just want to be sure it's normal.
Avatar f tn I am having an upper GI done next Thursday to try and figure out why I am having abdominal discomfort (started as upper right and is now on the upper left and upper stomach area) as all the other tests I've had done have come back negative. I understand, from what I've been told and what I've read, that I will be under conscious sedation and that it's a pretty painless procedure. I was also told that during the upper GI that a biopsy would be taken.
Avatar m tn I have been experiencing some pain in my upper stomach immediately after eating for about six weeks now. I am male, white and 65 years old. I am diabetic and have been taking metformin, crestor and altace for several years with no ill effects. The pain occurs about 15 to 30 seconds after ingesting food or drink. Fresh fruit and salads seem to cause more intense pain. Antacids do not in any way alleviate the problem. This pain is not at all like acid indigestion or heartburn.
Avatar n tn prior to this I had never experienced gas, bloating, pain, in my stomach or upper or lower intestines. I had relative little bowels problems other than those associated with medications I was taking. Since this test, I have experienced daily painful bloating, pain, especially after eating, that lasts for hours. Antacicids, simethicone and probiotics have provided absolutely no relief.
Avatar f tn On Monday 12/13/2010 I had an upper endoscopy. Dr said I have gerd and hiatal hernia. Also took biopsies but I won't know the results of those until next week. Anyway since I've been hone from the hospital I've had excessive gas which I hear is normal from the air they pump in your stomach but yesterday I had the sensation of a knot in my throat and near my diaphragm and dizziness. This morning woke up with a violent case of diarrehea that woke me up after only 4 hours of sleep.
Avatar f tn Or, afterwards? If afterwards, how much time after the endoscopy are you talking? I just had an endoscopy, and I was completly put out for it...I swallowed the spray they put on the back of my throat..and then out I went...didnt wake up till I was back in recovery. That was 3 days ago. I have a bit of a sore throat, but definatly nothing "painful". I think you should call your physician.

(I am typing this from the report given to me) I had an endoscopy done a few years ago with dilation and did not have these issues. Not sure whether to call the doc with these vague symptoms They may call me, not sure. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn Sometime in the night I wake up with extremely intense pain in my upper, middle stomach area, in the solar plexus region, and suffer with that pain for several hours, which is then followed by diarrhea. These episodes occur usually only 2 or 3 times a year, though their frequency lately seems to suggest they are trying to occur more often. I typically have what I consider to be "normal" bowel function. No noteable problems with constipation or diarrhea other than the above stated.
Avatar n tn It is now April and I am in constant pain. Upper stomach burning pain which moves can be on the left or right side under my ribs and sometimes goes to the back left and back right. It usually starts mid morning and continues on and off all day. It goes away at night. The pain is eased by laying down and seems to be aggrevated by sitting up. I have tried Prilosec which helped a little I just changed to Zantac to see whow that works.
936335 tn?1246415831 I have pain in about ten minutes after I eat that causes severe pain. I keep a food journal to try to avoid different foods that causes the trigger. But the pain is so severe that is debilates me for the remainder of the day and causes severe back pain on the left side of my back near my spine. If I take whatever stomach medicine I am trying at the time, my enzymes to break the food down, and pain medicine then I can usually function pretty well without going into that severe pain.
Avatar n tn Many years ago I had a severe pain in my upper ab/chest area. They removed my gallbladder; put me in a pain clinic ... nothing helped. I thought I was dying and I thought it was my heart. I even had an Amtrack train make an unscheduled stop because I thought I was dying and wanted to call my husband and tell him that. After all this, it turned out to be something called, costo condrititus, (sp) which is simply an inflammation of the cartilege of the ribcage.
Avatar n tn I am a 36 year old woman. I have been having upper stomach pain for over 4 months now. I was first diagnosed with needing my gallbladder out. Had that out Oct. 1, and still have pain. I have no appetite, feel full all the time, have constsnt pain in the stomach, and have almost like a burning feeling in the stomach. I have lost 33 pounds. I have had many blood tests. I have had an endoscopy, colonoscopy, lower bowel follow through and just recently had a stomach emptying study. My dr.
Avatar n tn There are a variety of reasons for upper GI pain after eating, including, GERD, an ulcer, or inflammation of the upper digestive tract. I would consider an upper endoscopy, or upper GI series, to evaluate. If negative, a CT scan or ultrasound can be considered to image the liver or gallbladder. If the pain localizes to the upper left quadrant, the CT scan would be able to image the pancreas and spleen as well.
Avatar n tn I have been having stomach pain after I eat. It started in November and I was diagnosed with Acute Pancreatitis even though my lipase levels were still around 290. I went on the liquid diet and slowly added food back to my diet. In January I was back to eating regular food again and I started having the pain again in the beginning of February. I have been in and out of the doctor's office tested for pancreatitis, gall bladder problems, liver name it!
Avatar f tn I've had a dull pain in my stomach, upper left just under rib cage, sensitive to touch also, for many years but has recently become more regular with burping and hiccups after eating or drinking. Sometimes there is minor bloating. I do have mild proctitis occasionally (diagnosed over 10 yrs ago) but otherwise a healthy active 56 yr old with a good diet (fruit, veges, fish, eggs, chicken, whole grains and healthy yogurt, ice cream. Tea drinker but have been drinking expresso this summer).
Avatar m tn did anyone of you have these digestive problems right after an endoscopy? i went in for throat not stomach,just wondering if something is a common link between the two.....
