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: .

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
