No need to be nervous - of course I was a bit nervous for my first endo - didn't have the joy of the double ender until later
They'll give you meds to make you sleepy - I hardly remember anything from any of mine - you'll wake shortly after - hopefully doc will give you a synopsis of what they saw - if not the results should not take long to obtain (my biopsies took about a week).
Good news is you'll be gluten-free while you wait - let the healing begin
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE -- probable cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
If you have read this far - hang in there - obtaining health with any AI is a marathon, not a sprint!

At 12:30 pm today I will be having my endoscopy. I can't wait. I will go back on my gluten free diet after the test. I am so tired of my legs hurting. I wonder how long it will be after I have my test to get my results? Wish me luck. I am a little scared of the test. I am also having a colonoscopy. Fun times I tell ya. Fun times.
Hope all went well for you!
2003 - Hashimoto's Disease
2008 - Diverticulitis
