Two Days After Endoscopy -- Very Sick
0

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!

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!

Kelly

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
    • A negative result from a biopsy that is.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
