#834102 Getting Ready For Colonoscopy/endoscopy

Posted by on 02 November 2012 - 07:49 PM

Just imagine Mushroom waving pom poms, IrishHeart jumping up and down and me doing cartwheels to entertain you as you drift off into la-la land on Tuesday :P

That's so sweet, it made me tear up. That's exactly what I'm going to think about! :wub:

It wasn't you, hon---it was me and my possessed computer.

I am on Cape Cod right now and it worked just fine!

That's it, then. I have to move here.

Thanks for the tutorial Everyone!!

and Kiki? hope you're still having tough.


Thanks! As long as I don't screw up and only eat gluten at night I get through the day. My consultation is Tuesday.

I could never make it without all of you!

#828985 Gluten Challenge Before Endoscopy

Posted by on 11 October 2012 - 08:55 AM

You caused nothing. There is no way you could have known not to remove gluten unless your doctor told you -- during my diagnosis process I found out the same way you did - someone on this board told me that I shouldn't remove gluten until all testing was complete, including endo. I was very thankful of that knowledge when I had my first appointment with my Celiac GI - he would have made me challenge for an additional six weeks.

I do regret that our discussion has complicated an already confusing diagnosis process - exactly what I try to avoid.

You have my apologies and sincere wishes that the your last days of ingesting gluten pass quickly - you are right that you already have the most important piece of info - you improve gluten-free. Obtaining a diagnosis can be important for many reasons, so stick it out if you can.

Take care :)

Thanks, Lisa! No apologies necessary. Not your fault that things went sideways here. I'm going to keep going and at this point I feel like I will make it. Just keeping my eye on the big goal. When I have my consultation with the GI, I'll tell her how hard this is on my system, and hopefully she'll schedule the endo quickly. I'm very grateful for all of your help!
