I went in this morning for my colonscopy. While there, he asked about my symptoms and we decided to go ahead and do the endoscopy.   He got about 6-8 samples and said I should have results within 2 weeks. 

 

I was so pleased. I didn't have to fight for it or anything.

 

So, I can now go gluten free with confidence. I feel overwhelmed by it  but glad to be getting stuff done.

 

They also removed 5 polyps and said they'll also let me know within two weeks what the report says about them. I've gotten them since 9, so most likely, another colonscopy next year. Oh yeah.

 

But home now, tired as can be and so happy to have food. 

 

I'll keep you updated.

Gives me hope...so many stories out there of unhelpful doctors; glad you found one willing to be aggressive!

That is great news!! I went for my pre-op for my colonoscopy and he suggested the endoscopy before I had to even begin to argue with him about it. Was nice to feel like someone is listening!! Hope your results give you all the answers you need!! :)

Even though my insides are still working to get themselves together, my mental health and outlook has improved dramatically.  Whatever life hands me, positive thinking and keeping an optimistic outlook makes things much easier  :)
