    Biopsy

    Hi, does anyone know why D2 biopsies would be taken? Is this routine? I was told everything looks normal but so worried as to why they’ve taken them it’s going to be a long 10days waiting on results.

    Don't know what a D2 biopsy is but every time I have a colonoscopy they take biopsies. It is routine.

    It's very normal for them to take biopsies! My doctor said to me before along the lines of "Might as well take something while we're up there" lol x

    Have you been losing weight,they might be testing for coeliac disease,but you said that the results were normal so I wouldn’t be worried.

    Re: Biopsy

    When I had mine colonoscopy and endoscopy, they took biopsies to rule out celiac and microcolitis. This was because I had had IBS since I was a teenager, and the doctor wanted to rule out any other causes for my symptoms as long as they were doing the scopes anyway.
