  1. I'm in the same boat right now. It's confusing and frustrating. I had surgery in May and started having stomach problems a month or so after ward. A month after symptoms started, my blood was tested and was positive for both h. pylori and celiac. Did the antibiotics for the h pylori then they scope me....nothing. I lost 35 lbs in a month and a half how can there be nothing? That's been a month ago and I've been gluten free since then and haven't lost anymore weight nor been sick. When I accidentally get some gluten I end up sick. The Dr said that he took a couple of biopsies of the intestine and one of the stomach. You hate to second guess the highly educated Dr, but you also hate to pay tons of money for a procedure that you don't think was done accurately and has left you not knowing what is wrong with you. I don't want celiac, but even more than that, I don't want to not know what the problem is. You can't treat it if you don't know what it is. Of the family Dr, hematologist (enlarged spleen that seemed to come along with this), and gastro one one has yet to tell me what causes positive celiac blood tests and negative biopsies.
