Just Had Endescope tests today

Hi Guys

First time poster but many time reader

Just had a Endsescope test re possible Hiatus Hernia as suggested by family doctor.

Hospital have ruled out Hiatus Hernia and never took any biopsies .

They are now sending me for a Barium Meal to get to the bottom of my discomfort.

My syptoms are similar to Hiatus Hernia i.e.

Sore Chest
Stomach pain
loss of Apetite & difficulty in eating large meals
Regurgitation after large meal

Any ideas what we could be looking at & the hospital said nothing to worry about i.e. cancer stc

Can they be right re cancer ???

Re: Just Had Endescope tests today

Welcome to Healthboards!!

Many times a hiatal hernia cannot be seen with a scope exam. The hernia may only go into spasms then it can be diagnosed. That happened to my wife for several years before it was diagnosed -- it can be very frustrating.
And yes stomach cancer can be seen using a scope-- The examiner just did see anything that that looked bad enough to take a biopsy.
Gastritis or an ulcer would show up because of the way it looks.

These days with the endoscopy exams -- doctors can see alot which is a blessing but they sure have problems dianosing ailments.

Your symptoms also could be gallbladder problems. You may need a Hida Scan??

I wish you well~~~Harry
