Just Back From The Biopsy
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I just returned from the biopsy (what an awful test!!!). However, everything went fine and this is what the doc said: Small bowel looked fine. I have some inflammed areas in by stomach. (This I could see myself - it looked like faint blushing on the stomach wall). He took biopsies from my small bowel and stomach and saind I would get the results in two-three weeks...

So, what do you make of this???? Is celiac disease visible at an endoscopy, or can you only tell from the biopsy?? And what about this inflammation - can celiac disease affect the gastric area as well as the small bowel?

I would appreciate your opinon on this!

Thanks,

/Cami

When my husband had his first biopsy it was said that all 'looked' normal.

However the results of the biopsy showed extensive villous atrophy-that's when he got his diagnosis.

When they take a biopsy they look at it under a microscope-so even if all looks well to the naked eye it may not be.

It's quite possible that coeliac disease could make your stomach 'look' inflamed.

Hang on for those results-you really can't tell until you get them.

Good luck :)
