Yeah, I had my procedure done...i'm not sure how many days ago. But it was all fine. Honestly I was less nervous about it than I thought I would be. I went in at 9am, my motion sickness for travelling was bad as always, and I signed in. When they called my named I was escorted into and area where a lot of folks are recovering from their procedure and some were waiting to have theirs done. they gave me a dressing gown to wear and they asked me some questions and told me about the procedure. Then the IV was put in my hand since two nurses had a hard time with the veins in my arm. Then I was wheeled into the room where my Endoscopy would be performed and I was with the male doctor and two of his nurses. I asked them if they could put me completely under for the test and I think he said something like no? Or he said that it's like a "conscious sedation", so that freaked me out because a nurse i spoke to before i was wheeled in said that they put you completely under. So because of that I started to close up and get freaked out. Then they sprayed my throat with this numbing spray that was wild cherry flavored but it was kind of not so great.
After that was when I started to cry and they asked me to lay on my left side and that's when one of the nurses started giving me the sleeping drugs through the IV. They were all really nice in trying to calm me. The male doctor asked the nurses to put on soothing music and then they were trying to tell me to stay calm and to keep breathing. Actually, I remember the male doctor saying "you're making a big deal over nothing", that didn't bode well with me. Like, okay, here I am already facing one of my worst fears and you tell me to get over it? Right-o. Anyway, I was knocked out like a light as soon as those drugs came through, and then I soon woke up in recovery and I had some water and graham crackers. I had no side effects aside from a little sore throat but that was it. They took a biopsy and I guess those results will come back in about a week. Apparently, the nurse said that everything looked fine? That's good to hear.
The only problem I still have is it's still hard for me to swallow but it's getting slightly better, and i still have my sinus/nose/ears/throat thing going on that has been making me feel so sick for the past month. When i say it makes me sick i meant it makes me nauseous. it's just bad. So the next plan of action is to visit and Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor and see that they have to say about it. Then the biopsy results will come back and I guess we'll see that happens from there.
