My father in law is having a gastroscopy tomorrow. Much better than a colonoscopy … but still he’s kind of nervous.
He’s apparently been having some trouble swallowing when he’s eating so his doctor wanted to make sure there’s nothing wrong with his esophagus or stomach.
We’re a little worried for him too. He’s 81 now I believe so any operation is a little more risky than if he were younger.
Like I said earlier I’m glad he’s not having a colonoscopy though .. the prep for that is kind of like doing quick trim burn and cleanse but worse! I should know – with my crohn’s I have to have that test at least once a year and sometimes twice or more. It’s awful.
I don’t get along all that well with my in-laws because of some things they did in the past, but still, I’ll be waiting to hear that everything went well. So will my husband.
