Update On My 2 Year Olds Scope/biopsy

Recommended Posts

I am so wrapped up in daily life I forgot to post! He finally got to have the proceedure done on the 9th and nothing was found. OK. I have mixed feelings about this, one of relief that there wasn't any damage found with the NAKED eye and one of frustration because he still has suspicious bowel movements. Now, the biopsy results won't be back until the end of this week so a few more days we are suppose to wait. Gaah!

If nothing else, it seems we will be back at the allergist to see if there are other allergies that have been overlooked or newly developed. Like the egg one that came up pos. on the RAST test that I think I'd like to be confirmed with the scratch test. He doesn't react but I know he may at some later date. I'm just tired of taking things away from him.

So nothing really new to report except that all seems normal and I will update when we get biopsy results.

I was wondering what had happened because I haven't seen you posting lately. Did you ever do stool testing? I can't remember. I did remember about the foul smelling BMs. My son has been having them and I took samples this morning to the lab. So we shall see.

Since you have the biopsy done, you can start him on gluten free.


Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.

Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.

So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!

My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

They did do stool samples and nothing came of them; all was normal. Blood was all normal except an egg allergy and low Vit. D levels. Now the scope looks normal and we are waiting on the biopsy to look closer. If that is normal I am assuming it's just how his body reacts to his allergens? I don't know.

He's back to a gluten-free diet now because he is better on than off.
