Re: Ultrasound Spleen concerns...

I had a gallbladder scan (forgot the name of it) a couple of years ago and there was nothing at all abnormal with my gallbladder function.

Re: Ultrasound Spleen concerns...

I have yet to have anyone look into it. I have an appointment with Dr. Dillon at the University of Iowa in May and he is an Endocrinologist with a specialty in neuroendocrinology. I lot of my symptoms match pheochromocytoma or carcinoma. I might send a message to my regular physician's office to see...

Re: First Colonoscopy/Endoscopy - How long for biopsy results?

Results were negative; however upon reading the pathology report, the "random" biopsies were not from the areas noted on my ct scan. Go figure!

New post today regarding questions about things seen on my spleen during a recent ultrasound.

Re: First Colonoscopy/Endoscopy - How long for biopsy results?

I hope you get your results soon!*hugs* Waiting is really hard!*hugs* My first biopsy results didn't take too long but my post surgery pathology report too a long time. *hugs* Thank you! I just found out today that 2 of my aunts (by marriage - one on Dad's side and one on Mom's side) have cancer......

Re: First Colonoscopy/Endoscopy - How long for biopsy results?

8 days since my procedure.... still no biopsy results.

In what I thought was an unrelated cardiology visit yesterday - it is mildly suspected that I may have a carcinoid tumor or pheochromocytoma.... now also awaiting those blood tests.

Sigh....

Thank you all. I'm just not a patient person! Feeling poorly makes a person desire answers.

Re: First Colonoscopy/Endoscopy - How long for biopsy results?

Called lab yesterday to see if any results were in... no call back. Called my gastro doc today, left message regarding results... no call back. It's odd to me only because I am on their online health chart system and generally results go in there quickly... as well as notes. I'm probably over worryi...

How long does it generally take for random biopsies results to be available?

Fever after colonoscopy/endoscopy

I have had a constant fever (99.5 - 100.8 ) since my colonoscopy/endoscopy 5 days ago. I called the GI resident on call on Saturday and he said no big deal if I had no pain.

Is this normal? (also no word on multiple biopsies)

What is antritis?

Noted in my endoscopy/colonoscopy notes is "mild antritis biopsies taken". What is antritis? Seriously cannot find a definition of this anywhere in relation to endoscopy or colonoscopy.... ?
