Should I take endoscopy

Nov 9, 2007

Doc. recommended endoscopy.. I read that there are chances for Hep B/HIV risks because of endoscopy..Is that true?? .. this causing me panic...because doc. will not know anything until endoscopy..and I am afraid endoscopy is risky..what to do ??

Response from Dr. Frascino


Nope. That is not true. If it were, do you think any rational person would get an elective endoscopy? Frevinsakes! Be reasonable!

Dr. Bob

Where is the line??? (interesting question...) (3 MONTHS VERSUS 6 MONTHS)
Thanks Dr. Bob Negative at 11 months
