Hey y'all, sorry if I post alot of questions...but y'all answer me so I like the feedback. I read an article where alot of patients died within 30 days of the procedure.
 
Take a look at the article...   http://www.wddty.com/endoscopy.html
 
I don't know if it's because it's in the UK or what? I'm in U.S...has anybody heard of such in the U.S.?

Nope, haven't heard anything like that in US.
You have to remember Uk doctors are different from US doctors.
They have restrictions and different rules of treatment. Some don't get treatment until they are seriously ill and that raises the risks.

There is always a slim chance of something going wrong or having a sub-par doctor.

Well, that was not too enlightening, considering I just had one on Tuesday

I have worked with a GI Doctor for 26 years and she does 100s of scopes every month. She has never lost a patient due to any type of scope.


My husband has had many scopes and I never fear that he will die from a scope.



Kindly,



Kitt
