Hi, and thank you for coming to JustAnswer.com with your question.

Are you sure it is and OGD and not an EGD?

What is the problem that is making the specialist request this test?

He is going to do a colonoscopy and ogd.

Lower abdominal pain. Ovarian pollup removed one year ago.

Doctor: Dr. Charogat, Doctor replied 8 years ago
It sounds like he meant an EGD. The first part of the word Esophago - is spelled Eosophago in 'English' (as opposed to American) countries.

An EGD is an esophagogastroduodenoscopy. (Long word, not as scary as it sounds).
To put it very simply - it is sort of like the colonoscopy, only from the other end.
The doctor sedates you and then puts a camera down your through, through your stomach and in to the beginning of the small intestine.
During this he notes if anything looks abnormal and if he sees something abnormal he might take a biopsy.

I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you need more information.

G-d Bless

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
