OGD - Camera in stomach test.

Hi all,

I have an OGD scheduled for 2.45pm on Wednesday. I have been told not to eat after 8 in the morning, and only drink water up until 2 hours before. It has no mention about alcohol??? I assume as with most tests you cannot drink alcohol 24 hours before. I am having a friend over tonight and would like to share a bottle of wine with them, but i do not want to mess up my test?

My doctor thinks i have a gasto problem and that there is to much acid below my chest area. The meds she described never worked and i took them for 3 months, hence the reason for the test. I have IBS, but the lower tummy is not really my problem at the moment. It is under my ribs and in the centre of my chest. It can be tender, feel like an obstruction and the most frequent sympton is like my whole upper body, ribs and chest are being compressed a little.

Also, probably a silly question but what does this test actually look for? Does the camera only see into the tummy, or could it show up other issues? For example will they be able to see other organs such as the liver etc.. I am assuming the throat to the stomach has a sealed lining so not? Sorry, i guess these are uneducated questions to ask.

many thanks
Paul

I would not drink alcohol but ask your doctor to be sure.
