I have barretts, I had another endoscopy 5 days ago and the dr. took biopsies and used a dilator because I have dysphagia. I have lost my appetite, I hurt when I eat and I am burping, now I am throwing up soup, could the endoscopy have caused these problems?

  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

I am not sure, but when ever they put instruments down ur throat it can get scratched and this can cause some issues such as Thrush, but I am not sure to the degree u mention....

Thrush can develop quickly, it causes a cottage cheese appearance on ur tongue and can cause it to feel like food gets caught in ur esophagus.

Stress about all this could be adding to what is going on...call ur Dr and tell hm about what has developed after the testing.
