Hic Doctor David.
This is Adriane. Has an Upper GI endoscooy and a colonoscopy. The colon is clear, but the stomach has a chronic gastritis and what I worry the most: "no gross lesions in the duodenum
" and "Erythematous duodenopathy." All sent to bipsy. The Problem is: my doctor also asked me another test: the capsule endoscopic." And when I started to research about it, I fell apart. Since then, I cannot sleep, I cannot even function! I have called the doctor, but he doesn't answer. The worse is: My tests were on November 13, Friday, I have tickets bough to leave the country on December 1st, to spend 2 months with my Brazilian family and don't know if it's worthy to be diagnosed here or there. I try to call my doctor assistant to see how long it will take, but she is not answering me either. How long a biopsy could take? I am so lost. So scared. Don't want to travel without a diagnosis. I don't have vomits, nor nausea, am not loosing weight, but I do have some abdominal discomfort. I asked my doctor if had cancer, he told me I have an inflammation in the duodenum and we have to wait for the biopsy. So, why did he ask for a capsule endoscopic? Was not the Upper GI endoscooy enough?
I was supposed to be focused on my trip, and now I can't sleep, can't eat and can't even function, because I am scared as I have never been in my life."no gross lesions in the duodenum" means Cancer?? Please, help.
