So hallelujah, I've been gluten-free since Friday after my procedures! Other than developing a nasty cold that same day, I'm slowly starting to feel better. I already lost 7 lbs of bloat since then-finally looking less "pregnant" and finally starting to experience a little more mental clarity too.
I'm still waiting for my doc to call me back with the biopsy results, which he said I would have heard from him by now...I just figured they are busy and Im not in too much of a rush here...after all- I already went gluten-free.
The only thing he told me on the day of, was that everything seemed to look good- no evidence of Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis, etc. He also said he didn't see any damage, but we'll wait for the biopsy to come back as far as Celiac goes.
My report from that day just says: No gross evidence for inflammatory bowel disease or celiac sprue.
I've read a few other posts, where the doc says they can't see any "visual" damage etc, and then the biopsy comes back and there's damage. Anyone else have the same scenario happen to them?
