In fact, there are no very important things to do before Gastroscopy. Before gastroscopy, about 8 hours of fasting is sufficient for us.
If the patient is going to undergo gastroscopy as the first case in the morning, we recommend that he not eat or drink anything after 12 at night. However, the first thing that is important here is if the patient has any other disease.
If he is using a blood thinner, if something is to be treated during the procedure, for example, if a polyp is to be removed, if an early stage tumor, which we call mucosectomy, is to be removed from this patient, blood thinners, aspirin, blood thinner injections under the skin, blood thinner pills called coumadin should be taken at a minimum by consulting the doctor. It needs to be cut 5 days in advance.
And the accompanying serious ailments must be shared with the patient who will perform the procedure before the procedure. Before we start the procedure, we apply to the patient not only to do this procedure, but also by talking about other accompanying problems.
