Biopsy Results

Recommended Posts

I got a letter today that said there were no cancerous cells in the biopsy of my throat and the stomach biopsy was negative for H. pylori. I have an appt. in 2 weeks for a follow-up with the gastro.


One of my main questions, now that those are negative, is how do we know if the esophagitis/gastritis is autoimmune or if it's just from meds/stress? He mentioned a motility test and a ph test (I think that is what he said...something about putting tube down your nose :blink: .) when he was going over my results in recovery after the endoscopy. Would those tests tell us or is that something totally different?


Some good news is that I haven't choked on anything since he dialated my esophagus! :P

Hey Nelly! I'm glad you got good test results and I'm amazed that you remember anything they said in recovery!! I woke up during my procedure & got knocked out completely so I wouldn't remember anything!!! Can't answer your questions but I'm so glad you had some good news to share! Michele

Soft hugs your way,

Sounds like lots of good news! It's all great!


I can't answer your questions, but here the link to our esophageal motility disorders. You might find some information there.


Look forward to more good news.

HI Nelly,


Good news so far!! I had the tube in the nose thing and my results were what we already knew from all the other tests they had done. It's not the easiest test because you are awake and have to help get the tube down. If you want to know more about it just let me know.

I am glad you recv. good news on your biopsy. The motility test is not really comfortable. But, if a good tech or doctor does the test, it is not that bad. E-mail me privately if you would like more details. Take care.
