Nice! You're lucky. Many people's Dr. give up after the first one and refused to go any further. At least you have your answer. 

It takes time to heal. It took about a month for most of my symptoms to go down quite a bit and about 6 months for a full recovery.

Thank you for reporting back.  I am sorry that you had to wait two years before getting a correct diagnosed (missed small intestinal damage during the first endoscopy).  Glad the pill camera caught damage allowing for the second endoscopy.

I am going to bookmark your post to show persistence in obtaining a diagnosis and the supporting fact that small intestinal damage can be spotty.  

I hope you recover fast!

So they retested you and it came back positive?

Yes, I eventually had a pill cam test looking for crohn's disease, but instead they thought they saw some villous atrophy so I had another biopsy which was positive this time

Thanks both, I was seeing a private consultant thanks to insurance and he was very persistent thankfully
