I thought I posted this once, but can't find it so I am posting again. Tomrrow I will have my first procedure done since being diagnosed, which was back in Nov os 2008. I got off the pills and I've been controlling it by diet and exercise. One of my concerns is having to go all those many hours with nothing to eat or drink. By the time I can have something, it will end up being anywhere from 14-17hours. I think the last time I will eat will be 7:00 tonight most likely. Have to be there at 8:30 in the morning, don't know the exact time the procedure will start. Anyone ever had an endoscopy, (Upper GI)? They put the tube down my throat and check the esophagus and stomach and snip off some tissue for biopsy. I am nervous. I've never had anything like that done before, yet I wasn't nervous about my two major surgeries (both csections) lol…I've talked to so many who have had this done and they came through just fine, no complications or side effects of the medications. My son had it done 4 years ago, and he did not even have a sore throat. I know they are going to check my blood sugar before they start.
