I just had my endoscopy this morning. Just as they were starting the IV before the procedure the power went out. They weren't sure what was going to happen but luckily an hour later it was restored.
 
The doctor said he didn't see any thing abnormal in the duodenum sp? But said he took a bunch of tissue samples and will know when I see him in two weeks. In his opinion visually it seemed to be okay with no sign on celiac so we will see...

My endoscopy was normal to the naked eye too, it did show some patchy inflammation but it wasn't enough to get a dx from my GI so I decided to take an alternate route. I hope you get some definite answers soon!

I will probably be even more confused unless I have a positive biopsy. I have read the stool test is accurate and have read that it is not. Same with the blood test.
I was only on gluten free for 13 days but since I have no gastro problems I didn't notice anything...here's hoping to an answer to all this July 30th.
