I'm so happy for you, too! Please know, though, that if your cancer returns in the future, there is hope with a newly studied supplement called Artemisinin. I have Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer that has spread to my lymphatic system (ALL of my lymph nodes are cancerous), but the Artemisinin has given me back my life. Many people go into remission with Artemisinin, but I haven't yet. However, my quality of life is very high....and I believe it has beaten it back a bit. As long as it doesn't spread further, I'm fine. Let me know through a PM if you wish to receive further information on Artemisinin and how it works. It's considered more powerful than any chemo on the market, and it has no side effects. Once all of the clinical studies are concluded, people will hear more about it.

    • http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/115445-relief-and-it-isnt-dapsone/ Click on the above link & read it.
    • Hi Sarah, I agree with cyclinglady, your doctor doesn't seem to understand celiac disease.   Maybe you can check on Google for a local celiac support group.  Ask them if they know of any good celiac doctors in your area. The usual testing process for celiac is 12 weeks of eating gluten and then a blood test followed by an endoscopy later.  You are right, if you weren't eating gluten before the test it was not reliable. Welcome to the forum!  
    • Hi lolobaggins, Yes, it is not unusual to have symptoms that come and go after going gluten-free.  Edema (swelling) can also be a symptom of an allergic reaction.  Fatigue is not fun but remember your body is trying to heal a major organ, your gut.  So some rest might be a good idea.  The immune system response is going to keep going for several weeks to several months.  Each little bit of gluten kicks the immune response off again and extends the healing time.  So it's helpful to be very careful with your diet. Meats, vegetable, and nuts are good foods to eat at the beginning.  And whole foods rather than processed foods.  Dairy is often a problem until the villi are healed.  After a few weeks if things are going well you can try to add one new food a week and see how things go.  But take it slow and easy.  The fewer foods/ingredients we are eating the easier it is to identify problem foods. Welcome to the forum!
    • Welcome to the club that you never wanted to join!  (I plagiarized that from someone else here but can't recall who so I can't give credit to them.) Anyway, there is a steep learning curve to being gluten free.  It takes time to learn to read labels.  It takes time to heal (like months to YEARS).  Symptoms can wax or wane.  You just have to keep moving forward.  Give yourself time to heal and do not worry about the gym right now.  It will come back later, I promise (from a gal who cycles, swims, and runs).   Read our Newbie 101 section pinned at the top of the "Coping" section.  It contains valuable tips about cross contamination and hidden sources of gluten.  Read, read, read, the internet from reliable sources (not crazy bloggers).   You will feel better soon.  
    • Ha!    That happens to me all the time!!!!!  It drives me crazy!
