I'm going in for yet another upper scope & biopsey on Thursday afternoon. How many of you have had a biopsey before? I've had a CT scan, Ultrasound, Gastric Emptying study, Upper and Lower(colonoscopy) scope , bravo ph monitor, celiac, diabetes..and a ton of other tests I can't even remember recently. They still don't know what's wrong with me GI wise, so i'm having another upper scope, this time with a biopsey on Thursday. I'm kinda nervous about it- i've been through it before, but it's just the biopsey part that makes me nervous. How many of ya'll have had one before? (So far, i've been diagnosed with GERD, Gastroparesis, Hiatial Hernia, severe IBS, lactose intolerance,....and i'm sure i forgot something else...) There is a chance that I have genetically inherited Crones disease (Part of my family is Russian/Polish jews.) / So they're hopefully going to reach a diagnosis one way or another soon. Have any of you had a biopsey before? If so, what were your results and how long did it take them to get them to you? I think at this point, i'm just feeling a bit like a guenie pig and don't have many answers...so it's frusterating when they do test after test without much help you know?
