In Topic: Just Got Done With Endo.

Well, I am feeling a little better this morning than I did last night.

Rusla - that stinks that you dont that he took enough biopsies.

He basically made his mind up before he even did the endo that I didn't have celiac b/c my blood work was negative. I think I need to find a new dr b/c he's not trying to figure out what is wrong with me he just wants to see what medicines work. Does that make sense? Instead of saying "let's try to figure out what is causing these problems" has says "let's figure out what medicines will make the problems go away". That doesn't make any sense to me and I dont want to just "mask" over my sympotms b/c I want to know what is really going on.

The only positive thing he did say though was that he wanted to do this thing where I swallow a pill then he takes an x-ray every couple of days to see where it goes. I don't think I am going to do it b/c I am sure my insurance will look at a 23 yr old with a colonoscopy, endoscopy, and endless dr visits and drop my butt! :D <_<

Gluten and dairy free from now on!!!!

Pixi - I am in the same boat as you but I have yet to go off gluten b/c of my endo tomorrow. I know how you feel about the stomach sticking out and dreading getting into a bikini this year. Hopefully, someone will reply. If you find anything out please let me know.

My blood test came back negative and my biopsy showed blunt villi. I would go through the biopsy. It was a piece of cake. I'm so glad I did it. I have 5 immediate family members that have celiac and that's why I went through with it. I also had symptoms so I wanted to make sure.

Wow, thanks Shelly. I have the endoscopy scheduled for this thursday. Did your dr persue the endoscopy or did you push for it? Were you awake for it?

So, you are officially dx'd even though the blood test was negative, right? I am assuming you are now gluten free...have you started feeling better? How long did it take you to feel better? Also, if you don't mind me asking...what were some of your main symptoms?

Hello Erin :D

No. My nephew was not gluten free before the blood test or endo. The Dr told my sister to eat normally until he was officially diagnosed.

Thanks for the info. That gives me a little hope since I was not gluten-free for the blood test which came back negative. Maybe the biopsy will be positive b/c I would like a conclusive diagnosis. Anyway, I guess we'll see.
