I had esophageal candidiasis, found in endoscopy. It was treated with 3 weeks on Diflucan (fluconazole). How do I know if it is gone?

In brief: Esoph candidiasis

Generally this doesn't happen with a normal immune system and is usually found on endoscopy - have the symptoms that you were having resolved? Generally 2-3 weeks of Diflucan (fluconazole) will take care of the problem. The alternative would be to repeat the endoscopy.
