Sounds bad to me...
by wesdelwarrior on 12/23/2012 5:21:43 PM
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!

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.

I had i thing done exactly like that and a biopsy. They knocked me out and i guess i woke up about 15 min later and didn't feel a thing. This was after recovering from a stomach ulcer so they wanted to make sure it was all gone. The worst part was probably that I wasn't aloud to eat at all until after they were done!

I had one done too hun, and i promise, it's not fun @ first, but it's SOOO worth it in the long run! You get the info you need! I feel so much better now!
by pshimer123 on 9/5/2011 9:26:34 PM
I have one done too. If your doctor said endoscopy then it will be insterted down your throat. But they give you sleepy medications so you cant feel it. They have to spray your mouth with nasty stuff to make sure you won't gag. Afterwards your throat feels really weird. but in the end its fine.

OK so i have this freind and she used to be my BFFL but now we arent that close anymore.I really want to get closer again. Is it possible?? I wold call her but her mom is sorta mean and scares me she lives in another town, so i dont see her at school. Please help me!!!??
Hey girly! Of course it's possible to reignite your friendship. Can you talk to her online, since you're afraid to call? If not, I'd give calling a shot. If her mom does answer, you'll only have to talk to her for second or two, tops

this is mostly just so that the author sees this comment maybe?
well anyways im 14 and i had an endoscopy done like maybe 1 or 2 years ago? and the truth is it is somewhat uncomfortable especially when eating, so don't eat anything like steak. and it also feels really funny when they put it in (and take it out). so overall the entire experience is not fun but also not the worst. lets put it this way.. getting stitches is waaay worse
by maddieboo786 on 9/4/2011 6:16:22 PM
While I haven't had an endoscopy before, I know that anesthetic will be a huge help for operations.. Good luck, and feel better!

I just found out my guy friend (and my ex) is gay. I really want to help him through this. Im the only one who knows. and I need advice to help him tell his parents, and other people. . . and advice to help both of us through this.
Hey girly! You should feel really honored that your friend trusts you enough to tell you something so big. However, the best thing you can do is listen to him when he needs it, and be supportive. Let him know that you're there for him and will be through everything. As for telling his parents and friends, that's something that he should do when he's ready. And, it's possible that he may not be ready yet. So, I wouldn't push him to come out. Just let him come to grips with it at his own pace. And, let him know that you're there for him no matter what.

i had to get an endoscopy earlier this Summer. It is scary but it doesn't hurt at all..& it only lasted for 20 mins..Don't worry gurly, you'll be fine.Trust me..It's not a big deal! Get well soon babe !!
by haneen.pop.princess on 9/4/2011 7:16:57 AM
Awww I'm sorry you have to go through that. I had one done too. I was a wreck driving to the hospital. I got put under and next thing I know I am in post-op eating a popsicle. The best part is that they push you out to your car in a wheelchair! It will really be fine. And feel better!
by Maggie13 on 9/4/2011 7:07:04 AM

I've had one of these done before, they're really not all that scary. USUALLY if you're still a kid they put you to sleep while they do the procedure and it's absolutely painless to have done.
