Are you going For An Endoscopy? – Don’t Worry Just Learn Things That Will Help You To Prepare!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Are you feeling any kind of stomach pain or a digestive issue? If you are feeling any of these things, then Endoscopy is the only solution to that so that the doctors can see what the exact problem is. With endoscopy the chances of detecting exact problem will increase. In this particular treatment, a flexible tube is used in which camera is attached at one end and it is placed in the mouth.

During this process, the endoscope is passed through the mouth and throat of the person and into the esophagus, which allows the doctor to see the esophagus, stomach and small intestine’s upper part. In the same way, the endoscope can also pass through the large intestine so that they can examine that area of the intestine.

Who performs the Endoscopy?

 Most people who do not have an idea about all these things do not know about the doctor who performs the Endoscopy. The procedure is performed by the Gastroenterology and endoscopy expert or specialist.


How can you prepare for the Endoscopy?

Most people get so scared when they think they are going to have the Endoscopy, but there is nothing to worry about. All you need to do is to be prepared, and for that, you can check out the following points-

  • First, you need to prepare your gut. To do the Endoscopy, Gastroenterology and Endoscopy, doctors examine the digestive system of the people, which is why it is essential to fast for at least 6-8 hours before the procedure.
  • A sedative is provided to the person who is being examined with an endoscope; it helps in increasing the comfort because a person has to go through a lot during the examination.
  • The sedative is given through the injection in the veins that helps in relaxing and light sleep. People get woke up in an hour, but there is the effect of the medicine, and that is why a person should not drive till the next day.

What are the risks that are involved in Endoscopy?

Overall if you talk about the Endoscopy then a person does not have to worry about anything as it is a safe procedure performed by the specialist. But it can cause some complications and side effects, and some of those are mentioned as follow-

  • A person may feel bloated for a short time after it is done
  • Mild cramping
  • Can cause minor infection
  • You may feel some persistent pain where the Endoscopy is done
  • There can be minor internal bleeding that can be terrific.

Here are some of the symptoms that can cause some problem after the Endoscopy, so if you feel any kind of these symptoms, then you should directly go to a doctor, and those symptoms are-

  • Shortness of breath
  • Serious abdominal pain
  • Chest pain
  • Vomiting blood

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
