24 hour PH test concerns

I am not certain I have the name of the test correct. If not, what is the correct name?

The test I am referring to is the one LPR suffers take to determine how much acid is leaving their stomach where the tube is put up a patient's nose and into the stomach.

I have had two rhinoplastys and am concerned about having the tube put up my nose and causing damage.

I know if things go well, there will not be damage. But if something goes wrong, is there any chance of damage to the interior of my nose?

I assume the tube is not large and bends easily.
