Symptoms after an endoscopy
Hi, there! My 11 year old son had an Endoscopy today at Children's Hospital. The doctor told us it went great, without any complications. They said the Esophagus and Upper Intestine looked good, but the lower stomach was red and inflamed. They took biopsies for further testing to find out why.
My son started out doing really well. He ate well for lunch, had some ice cream for his sore throat in the afternoon, but then before dinner started acting more sluggish and tired. I realize he is probably tired, but he has started complaining that his right side, near his ribcage hurts.
Could the pain be caused from the biopsies they took or is this something that I should call the doctor on-call about? They didn't really tell me anything to look for because they said everything went well...!
Thanks for your help!
