Endoscopy Soon!

Recommended Posts

It's almost time for my endoscopy! Finally! My deal with myself is that I'm going gluten-free after the test is done, before I even get results. Because I already know it helps, I just want to see if I can get a diagnosis. My GI is going to do an upper endoscopy and a colonoscopy with biopsies, probably because my blood test was negative for celiac so he naturally wants to check for any other problems.

So I've been eating some gluten every day (never went totally gluten-free yet) just to help ensure an accurate test. As of now, I look like hell! My stomach is distended (never know which clothes will fit in the morning), I have dark shadows under my eyes, and I just look like a zombie. I even move slowly like a zombie. I bet if I muttered about brains people would run. And they'd get away too because I'm too tired to chase anything. :blink:

I'm just looking forward to feeling better! I feel worse every time I eat glutenous food, so I think the diet will help. A lot. If they can actually diagnose me too, even better. But if not, at least I'll have tried for it, and maybe some day they'll have a test for celiac that doesn't suck. :)

Good for you to going gluten-free as soon as you've had the endoscopy. I bet you'll start to feel and look better very quickly.
