  • Well....believe it or not the Endo didn't fight us at all! She is sending a referral for GI. Hoping it doesn't take too long to get in.

  • We had our GI visit. We saw the NP and she was amazing. I went in expecting a fight and it was so easy. She actually said to me "If everyone who came in this office fit in the textbook cases my job would be easy and boring"  <bclap>

    We go in Wednesday for an Endoscopy. She has to go under for it. Anyone have experience with what I can expect?

  •  <hug> I agree, it's nice to "see" you all here again!

    I've had an endoscopy; not sure if a child's experience would be any different. It requires an IV, so if she's an easy start the rest isn't bad since you're already "under." Recovery was fine, too. Groggy/tired for a few hours, and my throat was sore for a day or so afterwards. Much more manageable than my nervousness ahead of time warranted.

    (As a T1P, I would do it again just for the anesthesia... best sleep I've had in years.  :D )

  • Thanks y'all. They just took her back for the procedure. I'll update when we know anything.
