Heartburn Endoscopy

One of the tests that I had completed to look at my heartburn situation is called an Endoscopy. I have completed two of these in the past four years. An Endoscopy involves placing a thin tube with a light and a small camera on the end of it through your throat to look at your esophagus to see whats happening down there. You are not permitted to consume any food after 12 midnight the day before the process and you also need a designated driver to bring you there, because you will be very much out of it when the test is through. It is an outpatient process and it will take around 10 to 15 minutes. It is pretty much painless, they sedate you to help you relax and to stop you from gagging while they get the scope down your throat. You can expect for the rest of that day you won't be doing much, but after a good nights rest, you should be back to normality the next day.
