My Myfirst question would who did your scope? A gastro doc or a colorectal surgeon? A colorectal surgeon can get a lot of goofy types of polyps out that a gastro doc is not trained in. Did they give your polyp type a name? Do you have a major university medical school near you? I would get a copy of your medical records and get a second opinion. It might cost you another scope, but it may save you from surgery. I am not understanding how you would need a foot removed for a polyp? What size was the polyp? This week I would request a copy of your medical records, may take a few weeks since you just got your results and dictation sometimes takes awhile. You will wan ALL records relating to the scope including pathology result and any CT or MRI scans of your ab you have from the last year. You also want office notes from your doctor visits. Please keep us updated on how this goes.
I have been advised to have a lower colon dresection with about 12" removed. During a routine colonoscopy a polyp was found that could not be removed due to its location. The biopsy came back as inconclusive.
I would like to know if those of you who have gone through the surgery, would do so in my case. I am afraid that my doctors are all being overly conservative. They say that even if it proves to be benign today, that it won't be the case in the furture. So I can have the surgery now, or when it progresses - which will be worse. I am very afraid.
