biopsy in 5 days

I went for my endoscopy,the doctor said I have some erosion and inflamanation.he took 4 biopsies and would have the results in 5 days, however he did say could not find reason for burning stomach or bloating, not even sure what the biopsys are for?

of course I did not ask, was too scared.

can anyone please share some of their expierences with this procedure and if any of their answers helped them with their symptons.

once he said biopsy I was a wreck.My anxiety was on overdrive, so wish I was just a normal 63 yr old woman without anxiety disorders,will stop ranting now thank you for listing.

With any of the oscopies it's normal to take biopsies, so try not to worry about it, hopefully nothing serious will be found.

Hi I too had biopsies, all clear. But no other diagnosis than IBS. Finally found  ( four years later) that I have Dysobisis, fermenting of food which then gets bacteria in it, causes burning and extreme bloating, did not show up with endo because you have taken mds to clean your stomach out. Worth asking for a test.
