im wondering if anyone has ever had an Endoscopy. i want to know how long they are supposed to have the tube in your mouth. the reason i ask, is because im in foreign country and my friend has a mystery chest problem that is causing her some serious pain and also crippling her mobility and spirits.
she had an endoscopy, but as she doesn’t speak the language, and mosy the doctors and nurses dont sepak english, they didnt explain the procedure in much detail. she was expecting to be put to sleep, but they suddenly jammed the scope down her throat. it lasted no more than a few seconds, she said, and then she freaked out and pulled it out. that was that. they finished the op.
anyway the docs came back and said everything is fine down there. our worry is that they didn’t really have enough time to have a look down there, and as every other test is coming back clear, we are getting rather frustrated and anxious about the whole situation. just want to find out what it is. do you think she needs to have it done again?
