Two Days After Endoscopy -- Very Sick

3 posts in this topic

I am just wondering if anyone else has had this experience after their endoscopy. I had mine done on Monday afternoon...and I haven't been able to eat anything, just keep drinking Gatorade. My abdomen feels like it was pulled out and I have a fever. I called my GI doc and he thinks it may be the flu...I have felt like I had the flu off and on forever so I can't say what it is. I am sooooo tired and unable to consentrate. My GI doc said my small intestine looks pretty bad and he has no doubt it is celiac disease...however he took 3-4 biopsies of different areas and tested me for a bacteria in the stomach that can cause ulcers....that test was negative. I just feel awful and I missed work today and will have to go in on Saturday to catch up on my work....what a mess!

Kelly :(

I had mine on Thursday. I am pretty sick too but I think it has more to do with being untreated for whatever undiagnosed problem I have. I am trying the low residue diet to see if it helps. Potatoes and rice are a staple for me as well as jello and yogurt. I, too, am missing work. Of course it waits for me so when I do stay home I can not relax because now I am getting more stressed about how much work I have which makes me sicker.

I am sorry I don't have any answers for you but I do know how you feel!!

Thank you for your response. I think my intestines feel bad because they are a mess. The GI doc said he hadn't seen blood test results as high as mine, and the small bowel matched it. I talked to his office today and I am going to be sick for awhile because he irritated an already irritated part of my GI tract. I also am sicking with clear liquids, rice and potatoes I was able to get mashed potatoes to stay down at lunch. I am feeling very frustrated and overwhelmed too I think. I have known now for over a month that I would have to become gluten-free eventually but I guess I wanted a miracle and the GI doc to say...oh no it isn't celiac disease so I wouldn't have to change my entire life and eating habbits. But I guess I need to start looking at what I can eat instead of being upset at what I can't eat. Thanks again for your reply. I will try work tomorrow and see what happens.

Thanks again!

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
