Has anyone child had to undergo an upper GI series? My daughter is scheduled for one on Wed. and I'm just wondering what to expect? How long does it take? Is it uncomfortable? I just want to be fully prepared. Thanks.

I know that this is a little late, but my daughter had to have 2 upper GI series. I was not there for the first because she was still in the NICU, but was there for the second. It did not take very long and she was fine during the procedure. The hardest part is keeping them still. I hope that things turn out o.k. Good luck.

My daughter had an upper GI and suck swallow test done at the same time. It didn't take long, maybe an hour, but she was still in the hospital at that time. Results were mild reflux and no aspiration into her lungs when she drinks from the bottle
