Mar 27, 2010I had my 3rd EGD for dilation last Wednesday (3/17). I had to go to a different dr and ended up not being dilated because he said I was in pain and pulling at the tube while he was doing it, and recommened general anesthesia (yeah right!). So that Friday I was able to get into the dr who had done my first two and he was able to dilate me successfully without general anesthesia. It's been over a week now and I 'm doing well with eating, I'm hoping it stays that way. He did find an ulcer but said it's probably from the dilations, so now I have to add a medication to my 5 billion that I already take!
