I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy

Dude, seriously, that is a LONG word! How about EGD? I'm having one tomorrow, so, please send some good vibes this way. I've been having issues with heartburn since an antibiotic round back in December, and, just a lot of stomach and nausea issues lately (and negative ultrasound and gallbladder scan). Finally, enough was enough and this procedure was scheduled. I'm so glad, but, nervous at the same time. I definitely don't want anything wrong, but, I'd like some answers or relief! I know my endo has a lot to do with some of it, but, who knows.

I'll try to update tomorrow! Procedure is nice and early!

My hubby had one last Nov. They put him on Protonix. It is the 1st drug that actually helped him. It is worth it for him to be able to sleep w/o the heartburn.

GL tomorrow!! I hear the EDG will be a breeze once they knock you out. DH was in and out of it for the next day or so.

Good luck. I guess you're probably already there and having this done... so hope it's going smoothly. Wow, though, that IS a mouth full.
