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

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.

    To the OP, once in a while this stuff happens.  Please feel free to start a new topic if that would make it easier.  I am afraid this is just part of forums on the internet. I hope this didn’t chase you off.  
    @anasss Nobody in this thread has called anyone "ignorant," so please don't say that if it did not happen. Also, the use of all capitals is, in forums and other places on the Internet, generally considered yelling and impolite, and there ...
    Bshake, Look up the "baking soda test" ...it is a nice home test to see if your daughter could have low stomach that is triggering the ulcers or creating the perfect conditions for ulcers to develop....mastic gum as has been mentioned...
