  1. If your biopsies were positive, did they wait until the follow up appointment to tell you? Or did they call you ahead of the appointment. I know my G doc thinks it is just IBS, but he did check for crohns, colitis, and celiac. I have an appointment tomorrow, but am a little disheartened thinking my biopsies must have come back negative. Like others, celiac seemed to be the answer as all my symptoms (except weight loss) match so perfectly. A diagnosis of IBS just seems like a cop out and makes me feel like I'm on my own trying to figure out how to deal with it, even if it is IBS. Anyway, just wondering if they notify you earlier than your scheduled follow up if the biopsies do come back positive.
