Re: just had gastroscopy now stressed????
By gastroscopy, do you mean the camera down the throat into the stomach?
It's normal to take biopsies with that procedure. They check to see if you have a stomach infection called H. Pylori. H Pylori causes stomach ulcers and is actually quite common. It needs to be treated with a course of antibiotics. If the doctors report said you looked just fine it means they didn't find anything suspicious. Mine looked fine too, but they did find H. Pylori and treated it.
