Manometry

03/09/2009

Question:

Is the manometry going to be as horrible as I think it will be? Any advice that may make the swallowing easier....I have a gag reflex.

Answer:

Everyone has a gag reflex but almost all pt make it through this. It will be uncomfortable but doable. Think of it as swallowing a big piece of spaghetti!
