From the Mayo Clinic Website:
An upper endoscopy is a procedure used to visually examine your upper digestive system with a tiny camera on the end of a long, flexible tube. A specialist in diseases of the digestive system (gastroenterologist) uses an endoscopy to diagnose and, sometimes, treat conditions that affect the esophagus, stomach and beginning of the small intestine (duodenum).
Normally, you can't have anything to eat or drink past midnight. You are usually lightly sedated, and may be a little tired after the procedure.
