My father had an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy on Thursday

Resolved Question:

Hi, my father had an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy on Thursday and was booked for another one in 10 days but in his own town. Can he have two endoscopes 10 days apart?

This is Dr. David

yes, he can have two upper endoscopy scope procedures 10 days appart.

the question is why does he have to have a repeat undoscopy scope procedure if he had one already 10 days ago.

he should let his doctors in his own town know he already had it done

his doctors should contact each other by phone to discuss the results.

let me know if you have other questions.
