If you still haven't heard, that's probably a good sign. If something was vital you would have known quickly. They tend to put off results that are normal. Hitial hernias are fairly common and errosive gastritis is treatable with certain meds such as carafate and other stomach coating meds that allow the tummy to heal. Duodentis is an ulcer in first part of the intestine right? If so it is treated the same way as gastritis and ulcers I believe.
Don't worry so much. That will only make you feel worse. You will be just fine. They will get you on meds and get you feeling better soon. My mother in law's biopsy showed H.Polri which is the bacteria that causes some gastritis and ulcers. If you have this it is also very treatable. They will give you meds to get rid of the bacteria. And chances are once you start taking that, the ulcers will begin to fade.

Now i was asleep when they talked to my husband But he says the doctor did a biopsy to check for infection that sometimes only shows up on a biopsy.Everything i read says a biopsy is to check for cancer. I will not get the biopsy results for about a week and half so I am wondering if anyone has any insight on this. I have alot wrong with me and have taken BC Powders(about 5 to 7 ) a day for about 13 years.Does this heal? Or what do they do?Does it mean i should be concerned with the cancer thing? Thanks for any input Bev
