Biopsy Tomorrow....finally!

Recommended Posts

After 2 months of being back on gluten my son's biopsy day has finally arrived. They are doing biopsies of the esophagus, stomach, and the duodenum to check for EE, EG, and celiac. My son did ok on his gluten challenge but we did have a huge difference (for the worse) in his attitude and behavior, as well as zero growth and increased frequency and severity of his headaches. I am so ready to see if GI can figure out what is going on!

We are finally home. The GI doc said it will take 7-14 days to get the biopsy results back. He did say that the duodenum and stomach looked good but also stated that looks don't mean anything until we get the biopsy results back. He did say there was some swelling and redness in the esophagus but he didn't see any real indication of it being caused by GERD. He biopsied that portion as well.

 

Fingers crossed we get some answers.
