Hello guys

My Mum had an endoscopy a while back and she's trying to recollect what was said (she has NO memory - or so it seems).  She said the Dr described lines that he doesn't normally see and is indicative of something a ruther.  She can't remember what he said.  

Does that sound anything like what Celiac disease can look like?

Why not ask the doctor?  Or request the procedure report and the pathology (biopsy) report?  Usually you need the microscopic biopsy report to diagnose Celiac.  After anesthesia, people often can't remember.

THanks Kareng.  I can't request anything because it's her report.  I've asked her numerous times but she's just unable to remember.  I was hoping it rang some bells but maybe not.  I'm constantly begging her to be tested for Celiac disease.  Instead she battles every other known possible impact of celiacs disease but continues eating gluten.

I meant - why not help her to request the report?  Or go with her to the doctor.  No memory after anesthesia is normal.   That is why they ask for a family member to be there to hear what the doctor said and drive the patient home.  Maybe the person who was with her would remember?
