Is endoscopy test too painful?

My 2 nephew (8 Years) and niece (12 years) both are suffering from chronic hepatitis B by birth, Doctor has suggested some blood tests along with endoscopy, please let me know how painful is this test, can both small children bear this? I am very much fearing for this.

Hello, I am sorry to hear that your niece and nephew are ill.  I had an endoscopy and was sedated, I never knew anything had happened.
My throat was a little dry but other than that I was fine.  I think it is really nice for you to check.
I hope all goes well, Dee

You should ask your doctor the reasons for ordering endoscopy for your nephew and niece. Endoscopy is not a simple procedure, there must be good justifications for it, such as Fibroscan score, biopsy results, palette count, prothrobin time etc.
