Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Gastroscopy?

Gastroscopy, also known as upper Endoscopy, is a procedure that allows a Gastroenterologist to examine the lining of the Esophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine using a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light source.

What is a Colonoscopy?

Colonoscopy is a procedure that allows a Gastroenterologist to examine the lining of the Colon (Large Intestine) and rectum using a long, flexible tube with a camera and light source called a Colonoscope.

Why might I need a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy?

Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy are used to diagnose and treat a variety of Gastrointestinal conditions, including Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Peptic Ulcers, Gastrointestinal Bleeding, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Colorectal Cancer, and Polyps.

How are Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy performed?

Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy are typically performed as outpatient procedures under sedation or anesthesia. During the procedure, the endoscope is inserted through the mouth (for Gastroscopy) or the Rectum (for Colonoscopy) and advanced through the digestive tract while the gastroenterologist visualizes the images on a monitor.

Is sedation or Anesthesia used during Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy?

Sedation or Anesthesia is often used during Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy to help patients relax and minimize discomfort during the procedure. Your healthcare provider will discuss the options for sedation or anesthesia and help you choose the most appropriate option based on your medical history and preferences.

What preparation is required before a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy?

Preparation for Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy typically involves fasting (not eating or drinking) for a certain period before the procedure and taking laxatives or other bowel preparation medications to cleanse the digestive tract. Your healthcare provider will provide specific instructions on how to prepare for your procedure.

Are Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy painful?

Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy are not usually painful, as sedation or Anesthesia is used to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or bloating afterward, but this typically resolves quickly.

How long does a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy take?

The duration of a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy procedure varies depending on factors such as the complexity of the procedure and the findings. On average, the procedure may take 15 to 30 minutes, although it may take longer if additional interventions or treatments are needed.

What are the potential risks or complications of Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy?

While Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy are generally safe procedures, they carry some risks, including bleeding, perforation (tear) of the digestive tract, reaction to sedation or anesthesia, and infection. Your healthcare provider will discuss these risks with you before the procedure and take steps to minimize them.

What can I expect after a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy?

After the procedure, patients are monitored in a recovery area until the effects of sedation or anesthesia wear off. Some patients may experience mild side effects such as bloating, gas, or a sore throat, but these typically resolve within a day or two.

When will I receive the results of my Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy?

The results of your Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy will be discussed with you by your Gastroenterologist after the procedure. If biopsies or other tests are performed during the procedure, it may take several days for the results to be available.

Will I need someone to accompany me for my Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy?

It is recommended to have someone accompany you to your Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy appointment, as sedation or anesthesia is used, and you may not be able to drive or make decisions immediately afterward. Your companion can provide support and assistance during and after the procedure.

Can I eat or drink after a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy?

After the procedure, you may be advised to avoid eating or drinking for a period of time until the effects of sedation or anesthesia wear off. Your healthcare provider will provide specific instructions on when you can resume normal activities, including eating and drinking.

Are there any restrictions on activities after a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy?

Following a Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy, you may be advised to avoid strenuous activities, driving, and operating machinery until the effects of sedation or anesthesia wear off completely. Your healthcare provider will provide specific guidance based on your individual circumstances.

How often should I undergo Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy screenings?

The frequency of Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy screenings depends on factors such as your Age, Medical History, Family History of Gastrointestinal conditions, and personal risk factors for Colorectal Cancer. At BMCHRC, screening frequency for Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy varies based on individual factors like age, medical history, and family background.
