DJ's Test

Today DJ had an EGD done. It is when they use a scope to go down and look in your esophagus, stomach, and first part of the intestines. He also had his esophagus dilated because he has a narrowing of his esophagus and it causes him to have a hard time eating certain foods. He had this done several years ago for the same problem. It is something that will need to be done every few years. The doctor Aunt Bev works for is the one who did the procedure. He is very nice and I fully trust him. DJ had to be sedated for the procedure. He is very sensitive to this type of medication so he asked them to give him less than usual so they did. But Dr. Metrailer said that when he started the procedure DJ asked for more medicine so he gave it to him. He did wake up afterwards and drank some water. He said his throat was very sore and he was feeling nauseated. I offered to get him some food but he didn't want any. He just wanted to come home and sleep. His procedure was at 10:00 am and he is still asleep. I'm sure he will sleep the rest of the day. But tomorrow I'm sure he'll be feeling much better.

Was this just a standard test or is there something/problem going on? Hope he is feeling better! I know those tests are not fun- Jay had one a couple years ago,along with a colonoscopy- fun, fun!
