I'll know the results within a week, but he said everything looked normal... :/

 

And then he diagnosed me with acid reflux..is that a big symptom for celiac disease?

I am glad it went well. :)

GERD is sometimes a symptom of celiac disease. I don't know how common it is. I am sure others will know more.

I hope your biopsy results are very clear cut and you'll know for certain whether it is celiac disease or NCGI. Best wishes.

Ooops! I don't remember making this post ha, but I guess I have GERD and a hiatal hernia... unless those are the same?... does anyone know if THOSE can be linked to celiac?

 

Ohh and I am so happy with my doctor! He said they generally take 8-9 biopsies and hes like the head of a celiac organization or something, and he knows about non-celiac gluten sensitivity :)

Lol!! As someone who just had this same experience I have to laugh. Hard!! I totally requested and consumed a gigantic rootbeer float after my EGD and I have zero memory of it. Pity, that's an experience I'd rather remember!

So glad they took adequate samples, hopefully that means your results will be absolutely accurate. celiac disease or NCGS, I pray you have an answer soon!

Yeah I don't remember much...procedure at 9, home by 1130 (according to my hubby) and I slept from 1200-430pm.  Then went back to sleep at 9pm. HAHA!

 

I also "looked normal" so hopefully that's good news.  Something about abnormal z-line, but I don't think that's too big of a deal.  Results might be in as early as Wednesday.  All that really matters right now is that I'm back the good life (gluten free).  Hooray!

Let me know your results!

Hi! Good luck! It's really nothing to worry about... I didn't think it was bad at all, but I wasn't that afraid to begin with. I was heavily sedated, and the worst part for me was putting the IV thingy in my hand because I hate needles. My throat didn't hurt that much at all, but they sprayed it with this numbing stuff. Once I was sedated I was knocked out right away lol. I woke up in a chair somewhere and it's all just really bury from there... I only remember little snip-its of people talking to me and everything else is just black. My memory was terrible, and I couldn't comprehend anything the nurse was telling me, lol. And I kept asking my mom the same stuff over and over... Sorry if this sounds kinda scary to you, but it's what happend to me! I went home and passed out and then I felt normalish when I woke up... Just a little out of it and I didn't have much of an appetite, but I never puked or anything.

 

If you're worried about waking up, let the nurses know that and they can give you reasurance or make sure to give you a large dose. After the procedure, you won't remember much either so it's not bad.

Miss-Marie, just to add my experience.  I had both a colonoscopy and endo done and oddly enough the colonoscopy didn't worry me but the endo was freaking me out.  And I was just outside the room as the previous patient was doing his endo without any sedative.  Believe me those choking sounds didn't help!  Anyway, they gave me a bit of sedative for the colonoscopy but I was awake and watching it on the screen the whole time.  Since my doc knew I was so worried for the endo, he gave me an additional amount and it put me to sleep.  I woke up in recovery when it was over.  No knowledge/memory of the procedure at all.  And I wasn't groggy or affected at all the rest of the day.  Left there with my hubby and didn't have any ill effects whatsoever.  My thoat never hurt at all either.  I actually wondered why they said I wouldn't be able to drive after the procedure if I had the sedative, because I felt perfectly normal when I woke up.

 

I honestly wouldn't be the least bit concerned to have to do it again.  So ask for the sedative and tell your doctor you're very nervous.  I'm sure it'll be a breeze!  Good luck!

Thank you for your fast replies :)

taynichaf - I really hate needles too so that will probably be the worst part too for me lol, as long as I'll be sleeping when its all happening I should be okay, my main worry is that I'll wake up with a camera down my throat but I'm sure that wont happen, although once I was having a tooth removed and had to be sedated and I remember waking up when it was nearly finished, I'll try to be as calm as possible on the day and just hope that it all goes well. Okay I'll keep that in mind and ask the nurse to maybe give me a larger dose to keep me asleep, thanks :)

 

nosy parker - Ahh that sounds scary hearing the person before you choking, they must be so brave to go through an endoscopy awake! I'm glad to know you felt normal after because I've been worrying that I'm gonna be really dizzy or woozy for the day. I'm hoping my endoscopy will be not as bad as I'm thinking it will be, I'm sure I will be fine I just worry too much! :)

Results are in... Negative for celiac :/

 

Super disappointed because I'm still worried that they are missing something...

 

For my GERD, i'm supposed to be taking medicine or something and for my constipation I have to be eating high fiber... Example, wheat bread instead of white bread. I just really feel like doctors arnt listening to me....

LOL  :P  You can get your fiber from fruits and vegetables like broccoli.  

 

Dates and peanuts have lots of fiber.

 

A past doctor recommended I eat Whole wheat bread to get more fiber and

it was after that my health started to fall apart.

Right now for my gluten challenge I'm eating white bread because the brown bread makes me ache even more.

 

I'm sorry to hear you didn't get the answers you were looking for. :(
