Re: What should I expect from a ENDOSCOPY?
I have had both endoscopy and colonoscopy performed at the same time. I hope I can ease your mind about the procedure. I am not sure about the preparation involved for just the endoscopy, but if there is one...just follow the instructions exactly.
The medication used during the procedure is quite amazing. You will not remember a thing about the procedure, and after it is over...in just minutes, you will be totally alert, having forgotten the whole thing.
You may experience a slightly sore throat, but that should be it. The procedure can detect any problems, and can often be repaired at the same time.
I would advise you not to spend much time worrying, it is much easier than it sounds!
