Should have seen ok: Most of the time, even if there is some food in the stomach, the endoscopy can be completed and the duodenum visualized adequately. Certainly a biopsy for h.Pylori could be done. If there is a lot of food present often the stomach can't be examined well and the scope may need to be repeated.
