I went on a gluten diet for three months and then underwent both a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. I have an appointment to see my gastro on the fifth of March (seems like a long time for a follow up!). The initial paperwork he gave me said "r/o early barrett's" and I was too drowsy to ask what that meant. Does that mean I have early barrett's or it is suspected? Also, I apparently have internal hemmeroids(sp?). Are these symptoms of celiac? Or am I looking at something completely different? I really only suspected celiac because my sister has it. Was I on the wrong track?

Thanks for your help, everyone!

"r/o" means he is trying to rule it out as a diagnosis. Anyone can get hemorrhoids, unfortunately, especially those straining over passing stool.

There is not much way of knowing about celiac at this point. It is unlikely that he found any evidence of it on your endo with your extended period of gluten free. As I recall, you did not get much relief from not eating gluten? But it can take a while for things to improve. What are your current symptoms?

well i was three months gluten free but then I was back on gluten for three months. Mostly my problem is a BM, which is both strained but usually loose if not diahrea. I go several times a day, but I dont always get results, if you know what I mean. And no matter what I ate during the day, I am always extremely bloated by the end of the night and uncontrollably gassy. Sometimes I get relief from gas-ex but it is usually so hit and miss I don't even bother. Also fatigue. That is probably the worst symptom. I never have energy.
