Who Examins Biopsy Slides?
Posted 15 November 2012 - 08:28 PM
The hospital called that I can pick the slides up. Do you think the doctor will review them at the appointment or does another pathologist at her hospital do it? If so, should I bring them down the week before? Just want the doctor to have the most information possible to address my son's needs. Basically, he has classic celiac symptoms (diarrhea, short stature, low appetite, fatigue, motor problems, anemia, weakened and stained teeth) and I have celiac and he had a strong positive DGP IGA test, same gene as I have. I think he has it and he's gluten free but I also want his doctor to have the most information possible.
