    Upper endoscopy

    Hello! This is my first post, but am curious as to if anyone can give me an idea of what an impression might mean on the findings section of this report. This was for an endoscopy and It states the upper third of the esophagus middle third of the esophagus and lower third of the esophagus is normal. The Z line was irregular And was found at the gastroesophageal junction. biopsies were taken with a cld forceps for histology. Biopsies were also obtained In mid esophagus separately. Diffuse mild inflammation characterized by erosions, erythema and granularity was found in the gastric antrum. Biopsies were taken with a cold forceps for Helicobacter pylori testing. This all relates to my moms testing today. Pathology reports should come in within 7 to 10 days which of course right now seems like forever away. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

    Sounds like you Mum is being tested for gastric reflux and ulcers. The inflammation suggests some problem has been identified...you'll know more soon
