Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I haven't been on for a while but I'm back! See I was on gluten free because of the blood test but I've decided to get the biopsy done. So I was on full forced gluten diet (I don't have any symptons so its hard to tell). The official biopsy is on Tuesday and I need help! Maybe you could share your story, give me tips, or calming tricks? Even a joke would be appreciated. Anything you have to say, I'll gratefully accept. Please respond to this thread!

How long have you been "full force" gluten eating? I hope for at least 2 - 3 months and some say 4. Otherwise there is a very HIGH probability that you will get a FALSE NEGATIVE. Which is bad. Because if it is FALSE and they say you do not have Celiac (when you really do) and you continue to eat gluten (with no symptoms) you will still be damaging your body. This damage can show up later with the development of another autoimmune disease or lymphoma.

Not telling you this to scare you. But dont want you to waste your time with a biopsy that may not be accurate.

I know I would want to know.

As for the procedure....you will be out and not feel a thing. :)

The biopsy was a breeze for me....I didnt feel a thing. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again because I felt sooooo good afterwards....totally relaxed....came home and had the BEST nap ever! :D

Only thing is that I was totally rambling when I woke after the procedure. My mom said I was talking to the doctor but not making any sense at all. :ph34r:

If I go through it again I'll try to remember not to speak until I'm in my right mind. :P
