Re: Endoscopy looming! Scared to death about it.

Not sure exactly what you're referring to, there's one kind with anesthesia where they look in your stomach, but there's another type of thing they do to scope your vocal chords.

I didn't have it done for my thyroid surgery (just something else for my throat). What my doctor did, was spray my nose with something to clear it, and then shoved a metal thing in my nose, and looked down.

It was yucky and uncomfortable, but it was all of 10 seconds tops, so if that's what you're having done just don't think about it, and it'll be over before you realize what they are doing.
