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
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

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!
