That is one of the reasons they do the biopsies AND SHOULD do biopsies even if they see nothing indicative. There are times that the inflammation from Crohn's is minimal and difficult if not impossible to see w/the naked eye that the biopsies, IF the pathologist knows his Crohn's, can detect.
Don't worry so much about the endoscopy. Crohn's in the esophagus or stomach is relatively rare. Most likely what was seen were indications of reflux and perhaps h.pylori in the stomach.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
