Having a Gastroscopy and Flexible Sigmoidoscopy

During a gastroscopy your endoscopist passes a long flexible tube containing a camera and a light through your mouth, over the back of your tongue, down your oesophagus (gullet), into your stomach and the first part of the small bowel (duodenum). This allows your endoscopist to view the lining of these organs.
