In Topic: Endoscopy And Colonoscopy Tomorrow

29 July 2013 - 06:21 PM

Well had it done and all went well - as in, I don't remember anything. I did make sure that my doctor was going to take biopsies. Then I was put to sleep. The nurse who checked me out said he took biopsies in the duodenum. So hope that means he was in the right place. 

If those come back negative I don't know what I'm going to do. The doctor said everything looked normal (mind you, I DO realize that doesn't mean the biopsies could find something). My plan now is to start going gluten free I guess.


In Topic: Test Results. Should I Keep Pushing?

11 June 2013 - 04:59 PM

I called in and asked to switch to a gastro dr that I can communicate with a little better - though they almost didn't let me switch...which I found kind of disturbing in a way. I want to push for more tests but I'll probably get poo poo'd. It was the same thing with my thyroid...I urged my dr to test me and she said "normal" turns out I was borderline and when I'm borderline I'm very symptomatic. She also said there was no chance I had hormonal problems-went through two drs here before they figured it out. Just called my thyroid doctor today in fact and asked about t3 supplement because my tests pretty clearly show a problem – my doctor doesn't "believe" in t3. Going in tomorrow to speak with her. But it's basically the same scenario.

I have also been eating pretty high gluten (but I do have a lap band so heavy for me is maybe equivalent of a slice or two of bread, tops.) Is being tested while gluten-free the only real reason for the false negatives?
