General Surgeon 's  Response
Just cool down chanel, don worry so much or else u will start having ulcers in ur innards. so its fine that she is undergoing an Upper Gastrointestinal endoscopy. these symptoms are related to acid peptic disorder and u know what she could possibly have an ulcer too ....its very likely...during endoscopy they will c how much damage the acid has caused to her stomach, they will also take biopsies and will send samples for HP culture, so u will be absolutely sure if there is HP. Even if she has HP and ulcer it is no big deal in todays age these are very easily curable. till then keep taking tablet Pantocid DSR twice daily
