Biopsy today

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I went for my endoscopy and colonoscopy today. I was very nervous and didn't ask many questions. I was put under and still quite groggy when I left. I noticed my sheet at home, it said things look normal, that a biopsy was taken (this in the colonoscopy section). Would they normally mark down if they took more than one? The section on the sheet for the endoscopy wasn't even filled out, so my husband called and they said that yes they it looked normal and a biopsy was taken. I am a little worried- would they only take one? Things I've read on here say they take several. 

Celiac was just one of a few things they were checking me for today, but I'm just hoping they approached this the right way. Would hate to go back, haha

It isn't unusual for the small intestine to look normal even if the villi are in flattened. Did you have positive blood work and was it a complete panel? Hopefully the doc knew what he/she was doing and took more than one biopsy. I hope you get the results soon.

Thanks  for your reply. My blood results were indeterminate  (24, positive is 25).I had been gluten free for 5 weeks, followed by a slow re-introduction for 3 weeks. Bloodworks wasn't planned. I've been eating gluten for 2 weeks in preparation for this. Hopefully I'll hea in a week or so.

If it makes you feel better, my TTG was off the chart (and my mom has celiac) and I just had my gastroscopy last Thursday....my written report I got immediately after said everything looked grossly normal but waiting 4 weeks for biopsy results is next.

Wow! 4 weeks, is that normal? I'm pretty sure the Dr. told me one to two weeks. I was just saying to my husband, however, that I remember very little about what they said, I was still so loopy. I wish they had of had him come in the room.
