Had My EGD

I was really worked up for it and was scared but I had wonderful nurses. They got me hooked to an iv and got me a heater cause I was cold. Then the doctor came out and talked with me.

We went back to the room and they put on heart monitors and things and a bp cuff and got me to roll over. They put the thing in my mouth and put some medicine in my iv. The medicine did scare me a big because it made things spinny. But the nurse patted my hand and that was the last thing I remember.

I came out of it and got a drink and my husband got me my teddy bear and then my throat hurt and I was home. He took out three stomach polyps but beyond that things looked normal. I don't remember talking to the doctor or my husband getting me dressed lol but I'm at home and doing good.

Super gassy but it was a breeze. Much easier than I thought it would be.

On top of the polyps they found gastritis. My next think they'll do is a colonoscopy. No idea when that will happen though
