aph-SuFin (My Art) 2

The World of Me...

Went to the Gastroenterologist today, diagnosis what I thought.
I have what is called Schatzki's Ring --> I have the congenital kind, born with it and every year as I age it gets worse.

I go in on April 12th for an Endoscopy (Camera down my gob) to confirm diagnosis, then I walk around for two days with a camera set two inches above the ring and the tube comes out of my nose and will be hooked to a computer for 48 hours to check if there's also acid reflux causing scar tissue... EWWWWWWWWWW.

Once those tests are done and confirm the obvious... I go in and have a Bougie Dilator shoved down there to have it opened up.

Dad had to go through that twice before his opened up enough.

Not looking forward to it at all. No Sir.
