I gather that this is something to do with measuring reflux, but I've never come across this before.
Does anyone know what this is about? Has anyone had a test like this? How am I going to feel spending 24 hours back home with this tube stuck inside me? I can't believe they are going to do something like this as an outpatient.

I've never heard of this exact test, although my husband has a hiatus hernia and suffers with reflux. He had an endoscopy, but it was done in one appointment and he didn't have to leave the hospital with anything more than a cup of tea in his stomach!
Please let us know how you get on with this procedure.

Thanks Jo - I think I've found the answer here, just in case anyone else has to have it done. They've just made the appointments but nobody has explained what is being done: 24 Hour Oesophageal pH Testing (NIH Derby Hospital).
