Esophagogastroduodenoscopy

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy - Trying saying that three times FAST!!!

Its also called an EGD (now I know why!) and I am scheduled to have one on Friday afternoon. Since the CT scans and the colonoscopy didn't show any problems this is the next test the doctor is coming up with. They will sedate me (I don't know if they will take me all of the way out) and I can't have anything to eat for 16 hours prior to the scope - then they will insert a thin flexible, lighted tube called an endoscope down my throat. Hopefully I will just have a slight sore throat after. Maybe they will find the answer.

One positive thing though - it is time for my 6 month lab test for my diabetes - Friday morning after I've fasted for 10 hours I will go up to HAFB and let them draw blood and then Friday afternoon I will go have the EDG - I will only have to fast ONCE!

Hope it goes well. Dirk said they thought it was one of your medicines? I guess not. Hope they find out for you soon!!

Actually - I think it was one of medicines - each day I am feeling a little bit better!

They found an ulcer!!! And the biopsies from the colonscopy shows microscopic collitis - either of which could result in diarrhea!! At last, an answer that they can treat
