hokyma added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsEndoscope Done TodayMy husband had an scope done today (blood last week, but don't have results yet-urgh) and I'm wondering if the doc would/should have seen eroded villi during the exam today or is the only way to detect damage after biopsy sample(s) are completed? Just feeling kind of anxious to know more either way. I'm somehow thinking Doc should have visually noticed changes and feeling kind of discouraged he did not, but I have no clue.
I guess all the anticipation is killing me -I've been researching and learning for several months, come to grips with having to change over my kitchen and ways of eating for the whole family (both kids and myself are at minimum wheat sensitive/intolerant) and I think just looking for the green light to tell me "GO NOW".
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance...
