I had an endoscopy procedure done a couple of days ago. I was told that I did not have an ulser. I was told that I had inflammation. The doctor prescribed something similiar to pantoprazole . I was instructed to take it in the morning. We ll here it is the second day after the procedure and I noticed that yesterday and today around the smae time I get abdominal pain the also causes my back to hurt. the pain is horrible. What do I do? I am scheduled for a check up 1 week from now.
If the pain is horrible, I would call your doctor's office. There should be someone after hours to take urgent calls or go to the ER. It doesn't sound like you should have abdominal pain from an endosccopy, but I don't know. Occasionally the esophagus can get nicked, but that would be pain up higher. Good luck.
How does the pain relate to your meal times? Do you get it after eating? Any other daily routine you can attribute it to, such as taking other daily meds around that same time? You should contact your doctor. He needs to know that you are having horrible pain. I don't believe pain is common after endoscopy, especially since it radiates into your back.
