If you are suffering with unexplained and long-term symptoms such as indigestion, abdominal pain, vomiting, or signs of blood loss such as anaemia, passing black motions, or vomiting blood, further investigations may be required.

Oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (OGD) also known as a Gastroscopy 
One effective way to find out what is causing these symptoms is through an oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (OGD), sometimes known more simply as a gastroscopy. A gastroscopy examination allows your doctor to look inside your upper digestive tract to investigate symptoms, confirm a diagnosis, and treat conditions of your stomach, oesophagus, or duodenum. A gastroscopy allows your doctor to examine the lining of the upper section of your digestive tract. A long, thin, flexible tube with a camera and light source on one end, called a gastroscope, is passed into your mouth and travels down your oesophagus to your stomach and duodenum, to allow your surgeon to view these areas. The procedure takes around 15 minutes.


Your doctor may also wish to examine your lower large intestine including your rectum and colon and suggest you have a colonscopy. A colonoscopy is an examination of the large bowel using a long, flexible tube called a colonoscope. It is an outpatient procedure that examines your large bowel for changes or abnormalities such as colon polyps and bowel cancer, and to investigate bowel symptoms.

During the colonoscopy, a long, thin, flexible tube with a video camera and light source on one end is inserted through your anus and passed into your colon and rectum to allow your doctor to see inside. No cuts are required as the colonoscope passes through the natural opening of your anus. Air is pumped into your bowel through the colonoscope to lightly inflate it so your surgeon has a better view of your bowel.
