Gastroscopy Information & Instructions
Your doctor has determined that a gastroscopy is necessary for further evaluation or treatment of your condition.
A gastroscopy is a procedure that enables the doctor to see the lining of the stomach for abnormalities. This is done by passing a flexible tube via the mouth, through which a bright light is passed via fibre optics. Unlike X-rays, a gastroscopy allows the doctor to see the surface of areas directly and can provide far more detail and accuracy than an X-ray.
Preparation for Gastroscopy
Please read all instructions carefully:
Please keep taking your usual medications and check with your doctor if you are taking Warfarin, Aspirin or Diabetic Medication. If you are unsure or on other medication, please consult your doctor for advice. Please bring all medications you are currently taking to the hospital with you on your admission.
If you have any questions, please give Rebecca or Jan a call at Dr Paul Froomes Rooms on: Ph 9331 3122.
