Had My Endoscopy This Morning
Posted 29 March 2013 - 04:14 PM
Went in this morning for my endoscopy. The doctor gave me the pictures and said I looked good but need to wait for the biopsy results to rule out celiac and h-pylori. He said if the results are negative I could still be gluten intolerant so I should go back to gluten free which I gladly did today. The glutening was horrible, especially last night eating diner food.....came home doubled over, looking like I was pregnant and I itched all last night. No gluten today and already I feel better. Felt so good after the endo, I went shopping but my husband yelled at me for getting in the car and driving off but seriously I felt fine, even after waking up in recovery. He drove me home and then was busy with his buddies in the garage so I planned my escape:-) The Dr also said if gluten free makes me feel better than stick to it. I think something is up because pizza, bread, pasta and cookies and beer totally ruin me. So now I wait for the result.

Glad the ordeal is over and you can get back to gluten-free eating. At this point it seems pretty obvious that the results of the biopsy don't mean a lot as far as how to live your life -- gluten is clearly not your friend! Still.... an official diagnosis would be nice.

Glad to hear you made it through! I hope you get the answers you are looking for, but it's good that you're listening to your body about it. So find some gluten-free pizza, bread, pasta, cookies and hard cider and go back to feeling better!
