Yesterday I had a gastroscopy and biopsies were taken.
The report says 'mild oesophagitis' and 'More pronounced pre plyoric gastritis which may well be bile reflux'.
If I'd had my wits about me (which I didn't because I had had a sedative!) I would have asked what the biopsies were for.
I understood from what the doctor said, that there was no cancer, but how can they be sure if they don't know what the results of the biopsies will be? I suppose what I am really asking is, 'what else is detected by taking biopsies?'
I know I need to be patient and wait for the results but I thought perhaps you could put my mind at rest.
