Yes, there are some significant things you can do to improve your symptoms. The presence of mucous is common in patients that are sensitive to gluten. That would be a good first step. If you go gluten-free, I believe many of your symptoms will resolve in 2 or 3 weeks.

I have Celiac disease. I was diagnosed appx. 15 years ago.

No, wood or plastic utensils will not cause any contamination with gluten and do not contain gluten.

Is eating a lot of eggs a problem?

That is a lot of eggs, and will be associated with a high cholesterol intake. I would think that the limit should be egg whites and limit to 3 or 4 a day

Can I be misdiagnosed?

C difficile will not cause changes to the small bowel villi... it is likely that you have celiac disease if the small bowel biopsies are abnormal.

Bleeding after a colonoscopy - is it normal?

It can. Make sure you are not taking aspirin or nonsteroidal antiinflamatory drug or blood thinner. If persists see physician immediately
