Hi everybody. I'm new to this place, my mom goes on the site. I'm only eleven. Has anybody here ever had a biopsy done? If so can you tell me how it went, I'm pretty nervous for tomorrow. :(

Hi ,

Just to clarify, this is not Bette, that's my mom, she also uses this message board and told me about the teen section. I posted this message under my moms user name, I still need to set up my own-- whoops.

KK :P

Hey there... no worries about the procedure. It is pretty easy--the hardest part is not eating until its over ! You should be out for the procedure, and not notice anything. You shouldn't feel any pain either. The worst might be that you have a bit of a sore throat afterwards. Good luck!!

Gee thanks. :D That makes me feel better. Im just kind of freaked because knowing that your'e going to get a tube shoved down your throat, although they tell me they are going to completely knock me out.

You won't feel a thing. When I did the procedure 25 years ago, I was fully conscious, and the only unpleasant part was getting sick as the tube went down. The biopsy itself is painless, as there are no nerve endings in the lining of the intestine.

Cheers,

Good luck and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I got the results today, the doctor says i'm not Celiac now but maybe in beginning stages. He's putting me on the gluten-free diet for 3 months. No pizza, etc.,etc. :(

Just because the biopsy is negative, doesn't mean, you're celiac. The damage to your villi is just the tip of the iceberg. It's not clever to wait that long, just to see the prove in the biopsy. If you feel better on a glutenfree diet, you might still be a celiac :o . I hope you feel better soon on the glutenfree diet :) . And don't be sad about the pizza. With the development of the glutenfree food we've come a long way. You can make really good glutenfree pizza meanwhile :lol: .

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
