I have a suspected peptic ulcer and I'm booked in for upper GI endoscopy in 10 days time.
My problem is a knee injury which requires minimising activity until the flare-up settles, and I need to decide whether to postpone the endoscopy (for the second time, probably for another couple of weeks).
So my question is, what are the chances that the endoscopy would result in a change in treatment and quicker healing? Or is it merely to confirm the diagnosis? I'm currently on 20mg of omeprazole (PPI) twice daily. H. pylori has been ruled out, it seems very likely the cause was long-term use of OTC NSAIDs. Symptoms: initially acid reflux, but since taking the medication just occasional brief sharp pains, that's all.
