pain / soreness after endoscopy with biopsy

Had an endoscopy two weeks ago with a few biopsies of the esophagus. Had pain when eating for the first few days after. Pain subsided but I still have ocassional soreness which I never had before. Sometimes happens when eating. It's not a sharp pain or anything. I asked the doctor and he said it can take time for the biopsies to heal. Does this make sense after 2 weeks?

Hi there!

Yes, a UGI endoscopy may be followed by soreness which may take a few weeks to heal. You could try taking some vitamin B complex and vitamin C supplementation to help with the healing process. If the soreness continues beyond 4-8 weeks you may seek a review with your treating doctor for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
