Hi Everyone- I went in today to have gall bladder removed and it went fine. i'm a little sore and tired but I woke up from the anesthesia hungry!

And I woke up to a lovely bouquet of orchids from my sweey hubby.

They did Reiki on me before surgery- reiki on the feet feels GOOD!

Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes, Beverly

I'm so glad for you! I was wondering if you had decided to go through with it. Guess what I had this a.m.?

An ultrasound on my gall bladder. Won't know what's what until next week though.

I'm praying all continues to go well for you.

Whoa...hey! I certainly didn't expect to see you for a couple of days. So they released you same day???? And you woke up hungry??? You and your surgeon are both pretty awesome :)

Oh, Bev, I'm so glad it went well for you! I just pm'd you thinking it would be a couple of days before you got on the forums.

Take care and continue the strong recovery! {{{HUG}}}

Don't overdo it.

hi I happy to know that you came out well from your surgery. I had my gallbladder remove on 5/5 and it took me longer to get better about a week just to move around.

I still can't pick up my one year old son.

    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associateds recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.  
    • No, I didn't get a endoscopy or even  a blood test. I got digestive as well as other problems though on a number of occasions after being gluten free and accidentally eating something with gluten.  My symptoms were severe and dramatic so it was obvious to me that I had celaic disease.  I would ask the doctor what the endoscopy test is for and if there is any reason to take it besides confirming the blood tests.  From what I have read a false positive result on a blood test is unlikely but I don't know for sure. 
    • Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy? 
    • Hello One drawback is that there are no guarantees. You may go through the testing process and not get the answer you want or need. I did go through testing after having been gluten free and was stunned when I was told it was negative. By that point I'd gone through the challenge and seen various symptoms return so I thought I'd definitely be diagnosed celiac. The consultant advised me to go gluten free anyway and because I'd good evidence to support that I've not had any problems staying on the diet since then. So it can be done, it just requires a certain mind set, essentially I live my life as if the diagnosis was positive. No exceptions.   I think  this is where people make a mistake, if it's 'just' gluten sensitivity' then they can make exceptions on special occasions etc. I think that makes it harder to live gluten free because you still have to make choices and judgments about whether to eat gluten or not. For me, it's never an option so I don't have the conversation. Everyone around me understands that as well. Only you can decide on this. I don't regret doing it because I learned more about my bodies reactions but I found the challenge unpleasant as my reaction to gluten had become more extreme after removing it from my diet. You won't gain much for yourself, the answer is still the same and you already have enough info to know you should never eat gluten again, but your kids may gain if your positive diagnosis keeps them monitored in later life.  Best of luck!  
    • For me personally a medium result, in that situation,  would be enough to convince me that I had celiac disease.  Probably the standard of care is to also get a biopsy. Going gluten free is difficult so some people want to do all the tests they can so they can make the best choice. Generally more testing is thought of as providing better patient care. I think it is a personal preference thing though.
