On Monday the 31st of January, I will be having an upper endoscopy done under general anesthesia. I have attempted to have this procedure with sedation and sedation medication does not have any effect on me. My pulmonologist is concerned about how my breathing will be while I am under general anesthesia, but I need to have my esophagus stretched and I have been putting it off since August and I need to have it done. I am not scared of surgery even with my lungs not being in good shape. I am having this done at the local hospital endoscopy suite, so if there are any problems, I will be in good hands.
