MrsD raises a very important point. Please be careful about endoscopies.
Doctors would not believe me, just last Fall, when I was telling them about these dirty scopes. Lol! Where are they getting their info, or are they? We know some are not keeping up with important info.
In addition, endoscopies with anesthesia
can cause pneumonia. This includes not only upper endoscopies, but also lower colonoscopies. Heart complications may occur, as well.
People on long-term pain medications often need anesthesia/anesthesiology present during these procedures (while patients not on long-term pain meds do not need anesthesiologists present for colonoscopies).
I see value in simply moving onto the elimination diet.
I hope the diet will help you to feel better, all around.
