In Topic: Hep B Vaccine & Celiacs

23 June 2008 - 02:23 PM

Thank you for the information. I have just been diagnosed with celiacs and have been working for 2 years at a special needs school,,I have been thinking of getting the vaccine but the doctor in the uk would charge me 165.00 for the injection but now im not so sure,,hasn't yeast for breadmaking (some anyway) got gluten in? So might we also have a nasty response to the vaccine?? Maybe I should just change jobs... Lots to think about thankyou x

Just thought I'd pass this one on - I subscribe to About.com's celiac newsletter and this one came today. Hmmm....


Thoughts ? I was considering getting this. I wonder how many 'unknown' celiacs have this vaccine.

In Topic: Scared Of Endoscopy

06 June 2008 - 09:18 AM


I had my endoscopy 3 weeks ago and my friend had hers two weeks before. We were given the choice of sedation or a spray to numb your throat, we both chose the mild sedation. The nurse told me some people don't remember a thing and others little bits. I remembered very little in a surreal way but definately didnt traumatise me, hurt me or scare me and I was scared before. I would be happy to go through it again as long as I was sedated. Had the procedure at 1115am and walked out at 1230 (lunch time) met my husband and ate lunch. No sore throat felt tired by the end of day. Dont worry. xxxxxx

So I am anxiously waiting to get a date to go in for an endoscopy...
and I am absolutely terrified of it!!

It's not the needles part, (if there even is any) I have had many surgeries before. I am completely fine with that.

It's more the 'tube going down the throat' thing I'm having trouble dealing with.

Can anyone who has had one answer some questions for me?:
1) Did they give you some sort of anesthetic / tranquilizer to make you more comfortable?
2) Do you remember any of it?
3) If you did remember it, was it traumatizing?

Or can you kind of run through the procedure quickly with me?

I've had one bad experience with surgery and since then it's been kind of freaking me out a little :P

I would appreciate any imput at all! Thanks! :)

Thank you all so much you have made me feel alot better already,. I live in England and didnt know anyone with celiacs so this forum is a gold mine. speak to you all soon take care xxx PS hope you all see this as i am a bit computer illiterate

Hello and welcome!!

Well I've been misdiagnosed for 12 years and after 7 months of gluten-free diet my villy looks great (I still have symptoms and I am not completely well but I've been glutened some times....) . There are members here that are misdiagnosed for 40 years and they are just fine now. I've never heard of that thing you are talking about, maybe someone else has.....but I know for sure that there are so many of us who were misdiagnosed for many years and now everything is fine. Of course you will not expect to get well from one day to another, but eventually you will!!!

Read the articles in the forum, ask as many questions as you need to, follow the diate, take supplements if you need to, have a balanced diet, and get yourself a doctor you can trust and everything will get better.
