Upper Endoscopy with Biopsy

Hi,

I had an upper endoscopy yesterday and everything seemed to go well. My doctor told me that everything "looked" normal but they did do a "few biopsies" during the procedure. He said to call back at the end of the week to get the results. I guess I was still pretty out of it because I didn't even ask them what the biopsies were for.

What would they be looking for? The only thing I came across while reading the boards was H Pylori.

Thanks,
Mysticwingz

Re: Upper Endoscopy with Biopsy

I also had an endoscopy yesterday. They said I had gastritis in the stomach and possible celiac in the duodenum. This is what they were looking for in the beginning. What did the Dr suspect and what were your symptoms?

Re: Upper Endoscopy with Biopsy

Hi,

I was having alot of upper middle abdominal pain and bloating. I do have GERD and IBS...but this felt different and has been bothering me since the holidays so my gastro doctor wanted to do an endoscopy to see what was going on. I guess he did the biopsies to rule out celiac? H pylori?

How are you feeling?

Re: Upper Endoscopy with Biopsy

Well I guess this is good news....I got a voicemail from my gastro doctor on Friday saying that my biopsy showed Gastritis (no H.Pylori). He said to call him this week if I had any questions.

Does anyone know if there are any medications that helps get rid of Gastritis? I am currently taking Protonix for heartburn/acid reflux.

Thanks
