In Topic: Endoscopy X 2 - What A Day!

Well, you certainly didn't get a straightforward one there. It is definitely odd having the throat spray. Sounds like you had a similar response to the tube. Thank goodness you asked about the celiac, it sounds like you wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.

It's hard to explain the spaced out thing, but sounds like you had it...

Good it is all done, hopefully you'll get some good news about the lump soon.

I wonder why they have you still on gluten - do you have more testing?


Hi and thanks.

I don't think the spray to numb the throat is unusual. I believe it's standard practise here. I'm not clear why still on gluten either - there was talk of needing to have a colonoscopy, so that might be why. The whole matter is rather bizarre I think. I guess I'm just going to have to wait and see what comes of the lump biopsies and the ceoliac biopsies but it's certainly not a procedure I am keen to repeat again without sedation.

In Topic: Nervous About Today's Endoscopy And Colonoscopy

24 October 2012 - 06:55 AM

Hi there.

I'm very pleased it went OK for you and now it's a case of waiting a couple of weeks. I am due to have a colonoscopy and endoscopy in the next couple of months and am somewhat nervous too so it's reassuring to read the posts on here. Are you know able to get on with a gluten free diet or do you need to wait?

Best of luck,

Nicky

In Topic: Blood Results Back

Hi there.

Has your doc advised you to do anything differently during these 3 weeks? And do you know what 'high' means in terms of numbers? My LFT came back at 40 when average is 35. I was worried but doc said it's only a bit high and she sees results in the hundreds. I felt reassured and have retake test in 6 months. Despite reassurance i'm still going to reduce alcohol intake. Did your doc give any indication as to why liver test might be raised?
Good luck.
Nicky

Many thanks! I think I have been very fortunate with my doctor and am grateful for it. The same goes for this forum! :P

At the moment, of course, I'm still on the gluten (as per doc's instructions) until the endoscopy results. I will be very interested to discover what difference will be made once it's removed. Either way, I guess I'll likely feel healthier!

Cheers
