EGD is pretty quick: Upper endoscopy uses an optical device on a flexible, steerable tube to examine esophagus, stomach, ; upper small bowel. Often, biopsies are taken to rule out barrett's esophagus, eosinophilic esophagitis, h.Pylori bacteria, celiac sprue.

Drank heavily 72 hours ago at a party, prior to that about 2 drinks/2xs week. Safe to take 500mg tylenol at this point? No known liver/health problems
I had an egd for reflux.The dr told my wife that he found a very tiny stricture while he was there and ballooned it out.He said it was nothing to worry about and didn't take a biopsy. Now I'm worried?
Discuss worries: It is always best to discuss your worries with the Dr. who did the EGD. The stricture ismore a tightening of the area and through a visual inspection during the EGD may not have any thing in particular to biopsy, but simply more an area that needed to be dilated-which the Dr. Did.
