Post Endoscopy, Severe Heartburn And Pain
0

4 posts in this topic

I have been gluten-free for a while but went back on gluten for over a month to test for celiac. I had the biopsy done on Monday this week. I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy(for another thing). Anyway, so now I'm having really severe heartburn and a lot of gas and bloating. Not sure if this is from the EGD or the colonoscopy. At any rate I think I'm gonna visit my GI on Monday.

Anyone had these symptoms after endoscopy and/or colonoscopy?

Thanks

I did after one set of scopes when I had a reaction to the prep. I found pepto bismal liquid to be really helpful it seemed to coat the inside and relieve the pain quickly. The gas and bloating is pretty normal after a scope. They blow air into the intestine when doing the lower scope and it can take some time for it to 'pass'. If things get severe or you start to run a fever don't suffer until Monday call your doctor, his service will be able to get ahold of him on the weekend.

I hope your challenge was long enough to provide accurate results. A one month challenge is pretty short, although I am sure it didn't seem like it was. If the diet was helping don't let your doctor talk you out of it if the results are negative on the biopsy.

Unfortunately I can't take Pepto Bismol, it has Aspirin and I'm allergic.

Sorry this is TMI but I saw some streaks of blood in the stools today. My instructions say as long as it's not a cup of blod, sounds weird but I'm getting kind of worried. The pain seems to get worse when I eat. It's been 6 days now since the endo and colonoscopy, shouldn't this be gone by now?

Ah I posted and it dissapeared. I can't take Pepto because I'm allergic to Aspirin.

It's been 6 days almost since my endo and colonoscopy, should there be still blood in the stools? Sorry TMI, I wonder too if I'm reacting to the prep. The one I used was a clear pineapple flavored one. It was so nasty. I'll never do this again. The reason he wanted to do the colonoscopy was because I was having blood in the stools, I thought maybe that was from consuming dairy because I've had some dairy off and on and it really makes me sick.

I am confused, I don't think I need to go to the ER but I'm really feeling like crap. How long is this supposed to last?

I'm not going back to gluten regardless of the test results.

Thanks

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
