I Guess I Was A Little Crazy

Recommended Posts

I had my endoscopy & biopsy today and elected to do it without a sedative so I wouldn't be knocked

out the rest of the day. Even with a double spray of the stuff in my throat, & using every relaxation technique I could think of, it was VERY difficult & traumatic to go through. But, I did make it through, & once I remembered to breathe more & keep my eyes closed, it got a little easier. The nurses told me I'd done better than many of the people who DO have sedative, which I thought was interesting.

I'm still so tired today though, & feel nauseous from the whole thing. Glad it's over! Now I just have to wait & see what the biopsy shows. The doctor said he didn't see anything abnormal through looking directly, though I've only been back on gluten (a challenge) for 6 weeks now.

Today I'm back gluten free again! Whoo hoo! :D

Thanks for all the support!

Thanks, Judy. I appreciate the kind words! :)

I'll keep everyone posted on the biopsy results.

Enterolab did say I'm positive for all the gluten tests, plus casein too. :(

Also, I have 2 copies of the HLA-DQ1 genes, which explains all the neuro symptoms I've had.

WOW! I'm impressed too. I know having a baby without an epidural is a woman power but getting scoped without anything that is something I would not even consider doing myself, I bow down to you. Well I guess if I had a baby without and epi then I could have had a scope done without anything sedi. <_< or maybe a little crazy.
