Although complications from Upper Endoscopy, EGD, are very uncommon, they can occur. A mild sore throat is a typical effect and should not be misconstrued for something more. Bleeding where a polyp is removed or at a biopsy site can occur, but should be minimal. Perforation and death are extremely rare occurrences. Most typically, you may have a vein irritation at the injection site or a mild reaction to the sedative provided. Patients suffering from heart or lung disease may also acquire complications due to their illness. However, it is important to recognize the early signs of possible complications should they come about.

Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Increasing chest, throat or abdominal pain
  • Bleeding
  • Black stools
  • Persistent nausea or vomiting
  • “Crunchy” feeling under the skin
