Food Pipe Infection Symptom
Had emergency egd for stuck food, had inflammation in esophagus, stomach & duodenum. Biopsy negative. Are all infections checked or only certain ones?
Hard to know...: When trauma is involved, most endoscopists will minimize biopsies during the "rescue" endoscopy, opting instead to bring the patient back for a second look when the inflammation has calmed down. It is at the time of this second endoscopic look that dilation and extensive biopsies can be more safely pursued. Your biopsy may have included a check of cmv, herpes, fungus, h.Pylori or none of these. ...Read more

Unlikely: A complete tear of the esophagus from normal food would be very unlikely, and you'd know it if it happened (think lots of blood and pain).

The swallowing of hard crunchy foods can cause superficial but painful scratches to the lining of the esophagus. ...Read more
