Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
I am online and happy to help you with your question today.
How soon after the endoscopy did you start to notice the problems?
Why did you have the endoscopy done?
It is possible that the endoscopy traumatized your esophagus although, since this is done under direct observation I would think that the doctor would have known if anything out of the ordinary had happened.
It sounds like your reflux is getting worse. Why? That is the bazillion dollar question.
I think, from what you have posted, that you should give your GI doc a call in the morning and see if she will take a look at you to see what is going on.
As you know, continued reflux can damage your esophagus and cause all sorts of long term problems
I don't think he screwed things up....since there is such direct, visual control at all times with endoscopy it is really hard to mes it up :)
But it does sound like your problem is worse and I'm sure that it can be effectively treated
