Hi, I went to see the gastro consultant last week following my colonoscopy and gastroscopy in august. She said all the results and biopsies where completely normal and show conclusively that I do not have any absorption issues or pernicious anaemia.
I got a copy of the pathology report and had a look at it over the weekend. One of the biopsies came back showing "reactive gastritis". She didn't mention this to me. Can anyone explain what this is, would it cause low B12 and low iron (i.e. absorption issues) and is it significant? Also, can a colonoscopy / gastroscopy definitely rule out all absorption issues and pernicious anaemia? Thanks.
