Well, my blood test came back negative for Celiac. Now, I've done tons of research on this. Everything I've read states that the blood test is highly inconclusive and the only sure fire way to prove Celiac is through a small bowel biopsy. Am I right Harry, or am I totally losing my mind??? Or, do I have a dips#@* Dr (which I'm believing more and more everyday). I've cancelled the sigmoidoscopy. I told them I wanted a full colonoscopy with sedation or I would go to a dr. who would. He wouldn't do it. I told them I would rather give birth without pain relief again than go through anything that even resembles a lower GI. I was polite, however, I was firm. Insurance won't pay for it, but I think I"ll cough up the money and have a full colonoscopy. Why only do it halfway. I've had everything else checked thoroughly, why not this. What if I did the sig and they missed something like diverticulitis or something like they did you. I have sharp pains in my left side when I have a BM, so, I know something isn't quite right. Might not be able to find anything (as usual) but at least I'll know for sure. Harry, I value your opinion...just give it to me straight. Am I a nutcase? (Wait a minute, do I really want an answer to that???) I've had about all of this crap (pun intended) I can handle. My diarrhea stops when I go gluten ifs, ands, or butts. I ate a piece of bread yesterday and have had diarrhea all morning. I'm just about ready to give up on this...
