My Gastroscopy Report

Last reply: 26 February 2024 16:54

Hi there

I wanted to get in touch & hope I'm not wasting your time here but I'm a little worried about a gastroscopy report I received from my doctors surgery. It has stated that after my recent endoscopy I had on January 25th 2024 that a Fundic Gland polyp was found & removed for biopsy they also stated I have an irregular Z line. They took 4 biopsies were taken ; Vial 1 biopsy from the fundic gland polyp x 2. Vial 2 biopsy from middle third oesophagus x 2. Vial 3 biopsy from oG Junction x 2. Biopsy for H. Pylori (unease test). Report states the Management Plan is as follows: RETURN TO WARD. REVIEW I gI CHART REVIEW FOR HISTOLOGY IN 8 WEEKS.
I rang my doctors surgery to ask had they received any reports from my Endoscopy she said they had so I requested a copy for myself & I have not spoken with my doctor about this. I have had 4 or 5 Endoscopy procedures done but I have never had a report like this before.
Could you give me any advice on what this means. Whether I should speak to my GP as I'm a little anxious about this. I have to wait another 4 weeks for a possible appointment. I also have a small Hiatus Hernia. My symptoms are reflux constant burping reflux felling bloated feeling full before I finish my meal Abdominal discomfort pains irregular bowel movements. I have been on a proton pump for many years & I'm now taking 1 tablet 40mg in morning & now & 1 40mg tablet in evening my symptoms have been getting worse. It wakes me up during the night with reflux in my mouth. I have difficulty swallowing it makes me choke & cough.
Any advice would me greatly appreciated.

Hi LouiseK,

Thank you for posting on Ask a Nurse. 

I do hope that you are keeping ok after your recent endoscopy. 

It seems like the report you have is the procedure report outlining what you had done and what biopsies were taken. I wonder if you would like to chat to one of our nurses on the Support Line about your symptoms, the report and waiting for the results. Our Support Line number is 1800 200 700, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm.

Kind regards, 

Cancer Nurse
