Im hoping someone can help..
In June last yr I had a upper endoscopy (to look for an ulcer mostly - an explanation into my stomach pains). The doctor at the time said all was normal.
But I didnt know until last night, upon looking at my discharge papers, that a biopsy was done at the same time.. My Gp told me today that the biopsy was 'all clear'
My Gp suspects I could be gluten intolerant (am hoping Im not, gluten is in just about everything.. I can see me ending up hungry and skint!).
Im having a blood test.. but wouldnt the gluten intolerance have been picked up during the biopsy last yr, or does it need to be said by my Gp in the first place 'test for gluten intolerance' (do multiple biopsies) or something!?
Am I going to be having a second camera down to comfirm if these results come back positive (I so hope not!)?
(Ringing the hospital is no good as they'll have filed my records away by now, Ive been told this in the past).
My Gp isnt very helpful either.
Does anyone know please??
