How long does it take for Biopsy results to come in?

Recommended Posts

Hello again, you may have seen my previous thread! I appreciate everyone who gave the kind words! I had my biopsy done today (wasn't the best experience, but wasn't that bad either). The Doctor came in before the operation and asked me some questions. She told me that I wasn't 100% diagnosed and that she suspected what I had. But didn't tell me what. She said a biopsy was the "Golden Rule" for figuring out if you're a Celiac. After the procedure, she didn't talk to me again and I left the hospital soon after. All I got from her was a standard note saying I should make an appointment 10-14 days from now. She also wrote that my esophagus and stomach weren't abnormal.

   I'm probably worrying over nothing, but I still worry I might have cancer or something else like that. Does it usually take that long for an appointment?

No that sounds absolutely normal Nino. I wouldn't worry. You need to allow time for the biopsy to be analysed by a specialist and for the admin stuff that happens around that to take place. 

If they did suspect cancer they'd move quicker. Instead they're proceeding at the regular pace that a busy clinic/lab would normally move at. 

I would stay on gluten till your appointment with the doctor just in case they order another test, but that's just me others may disagree.

Best of luck!

Matt

Ah, I see. Thank you! I'll keep on gluten until the appointment, just in case as you said.
