I had my pre op endoscopy done on Monday. I awoke in the midst of the procedure in severe chest pain, with 3 doctors and a nurse crowded around the monitor. I was informed they had found a suspicious area in my esophagus, and had taken 4 biopsies. I am absolutely terrified awaiting these results. The doctor seemed very pressing when he was telling me to make sure I got a follow up appointment for 2 weeks to get the results. Has anyone had this experience?
I have been having a burning sensation in my chest, much like heartburn pain, and pain when I have eaten too much in my chest and back. These are symptoms of both esophageal cancer, and a stricture in the esophagus. Anyones experience would be greatly appreciated as my anxiety awaiting these results is like torture.
