Upper Endoscopy: This is an easy procedure. An anesthesiologist will put you to sleep, so you’ll feel no pain, stress, or discomfort. Once you’re asleep, the doctor will insert a camera down your esophagus to check for varices – varicose veins in your stomach. These veins can cause stomach bleeding. Your doctor will treat them to eliminate danger of bleeding.
Colonoscopy: The purpose of this test is to look for intestinal polyps HCV-related, but they will eventually turn into cancer if not removed. Your doctor will remove any polyps, and send them off to a lab for testing.
If you experience any new or worsening symptoms not included above, we definitely recommend you still talk them through with your doctor or healthcare team.
