A very nice lady performed my endoscopy this morning. I was under sedation so I didn't feel a thing.

So basically my hiatus hernia is still the same size. My esophragitus has gone and there is no sign of reflux damage. Which is fab news as it shows reflux is under control. My barretts area is only 0.5cm. She did 6 biopsies due to my family history of EC, which I will get the results of in 2 weeks. As last time they only found gastric barretts it will be interesting to see if they have uncovered any IM (hopefully not) The lady who performed the endoscopy was lovely and chatted to me for quite a while and gave me a copy of the photo.

One thing is that I have compared photos of my endoscopy with photos on the Internet and my esophragus does look a lot redder generally than most normal esophragus pictures, especially down the middle bit. Although Quite light around the outside of the photo. Why would this be when I supposedly don't have esophragitus.?

   Good it went well .Photos mean nothing ( I never look) it's the opinion of the Doctor's EYE BALLs on that HD MONITOR and the path department looking @ the slides .
That's why Chris is trying to raise funds for a New SUPER HG SCOPE HEAD for his Hospital ..
   Hope the NICE Gators don't get him.
