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,

Wow, well I guess I have nothing to really worry about now except for the part of not eating or drinking liquids.

You kind of freaked me out, because I private messaged with your mom a few times.

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: .

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
