What's an endoscopy?

I have been having major stomach problems lately, so my doctor recommended an endoscopy...

I'm getting an endoscopy done tomorrow because im having major stomach problems. i know it won't hurt but I'm still scared. What if something goes wrong? What can I do to calm down?

Hey girl,

It's normal to be nervous before a surgery, but trust that your doc knows what she's doing and that it's what's best for your health! Think of how much better you will feel afterward and you won't dread it as much. It will be over before you know it!

Sounds bad to me...

I have had one of these. They are not as scary as they sound, your ussually under an anesthesia so you don't feel too much of it. My advice is to calm down and let the docters do thier thing, they are trained proffesionals.

I had an endoscopy earlier this year, and it's much different than what was said in the answer. For kids, you almost always go to the hospital and are put completely to sleep with general, not local, anesthesia. Not sometimes- always. But you aren't asleep long (less than an hour) and pretty much everyone feels fine when they wake up- I was just tired. And also, an endoscopy does not go through your anus- that's a colonoscopy. Don't stress at all- this was easier than any other test I've had done, even a CAT scan. And, as an added bonus, my endoscopy diagnosed a rare condition that we wouldn't have found without it! Feel better soon and good luck!

So I've been getting these sharp pains in my side when I cough or sneeze. I got one today from just shifting positions. Also, sometime's when I stand up I get these black spots all in my vision and I feel a little dizzy. Then everything starts to come back to normal. I hadn't gotten them till like this year. Any clue what these are?

Hey girlie,

This sounds like it could be dehydration, fatigue, or stress causing these issues. Whatever it is, if it continues much longer (like over the course of a week without stopping), personally I would call my doc just to make sure it isn't something more serious!

If you have a stomach issue they will go through your throat, I dont know if I could deal with that. If they they need to get past your stomach they will go through anus. That sounds weird but I saw them do it to some guy on tv. Yes, it was ew!

endoscopy is video inside our bodies, that is just amazing.

My friends are so mean to me!  They tell me i'm flatchested and all and they keep telling me i'm to skinny that i have chicken legs and arms!  How do i get them to shutup about my body and how do i find self confidence in myself?

Hey girlie!

Your friends should not treat you that way!  It may seem to them to be in the name of good fun, but it messes with your head.  Developing self-confidence can take time.  You have to be okay with yourself, know that you're a great girl and that you're beautiful in a way that's just yours, that nobody else can have but you.
