Endoscopy Yesterday

Recommended Posts

Well I had my endo yesterday. I was so stressed about it but it went fine. I laid on my side under a blanket, they fluffed my pillow, put a mouth guard in my mouth, and then they put the drugs in my IV and I was out. The next thing I knew someone was waking me up in the recovery room. I had a little bit of a sore throat afterward, and an upset stomach but I took some Immodium and some Tylenol and rested the rest of the day and I'm fine.

The doctor showed me pictures (gross!) and said the folds are suspicious for celiac disease but the biopsy results will be another week or two. He said to go ahead and do the gluten free diet now. (My blood tests showed celiac already.) So now I'm a gluten free vegan. Rice cakes, anyone? Ha ha.
