Thank you both! And the explanation Swp, is that it doesn't make much of a difference. The swallowing part is a bit easier but the rest of it is just as unpleasant. Plus you can't eat for some time if you've taken the drug. I thought it was BS too. Then some of my relatives, who are doctors and truly wish me well, told me the same thing.

Thanks man. The procedure is relatively quick, it lasts no more than 5 minutes. But the last time it was the longest 5 minutes of my life. Probably my condition at the time was so severe it amplified the unpleasantness. One part of my esophagus was so badly damaged that the tube barely passed.

Why in the hell did the Pro Bowl get changed to the weekend before the Super Bowl??

I don't follow NFL football very much, but that seems stupid.

I have a nice looking cover letter, resume and references ready to go, and my POS printer is defying me with regard to the envelope.

It's probably a good thing I still haven't hung my heavy bag, although the basement is much cleaner. I'd rather go put it on the floor and rain down elbows on it. I f8cking hate my computer and printer.

Well I've done my thing today, the results are a inconclusive(to me at least) but generally good. No more daily medication for me(yippee!), but I have to go for a control in two week. Maybe I'll get new meds, who knows?
But, I gotta say gastroscopy was just as bad as the last time. It was truly comical, that situation. I kept trying to be calm and breathe, but my body kept burping and vomiting saliva. And every time I did that, the doctor would go:"Why don't you calm down? Stop doing that, it's not gonna help. Open your eyes and breathe. Didn't I just tell you to stop doing that?"
I had to look at the ******* tube the entire time!He is a good doctor but he was lucky I had a tube down my throat, otherwise I would have told him a thing or two.

Take care of your health before you have to go and do these things.

That's it for me for today. No training, maybe some studying but NO STRESS!

Glad to hear that it went well brother! Lol maybe you should have choked him out when you got up just to remind him of what it feels like


Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

This is far worse than choking, it wouldn't be fair.
