Can an endoscopy aggravate retinal detachment problem?

Q: I have undergone surgery a few times for my retinal detachment problem. Now I have been asked to do an endoscopy for my duodenal ulcer problem. Can you please tell me if doing an endoscopy is likely to aggravate my retinal detachment problem?

A:No, endoscopy for duodenal ulcer will not aggravate your retinal detachment which has been operated on successfully earlier, but make sure you don’t strain hard in coughing or vomiting while the procedure is being done.
