Re: Just can't let it go

Thank you for your kindness and advice. And those are good questions that I do need to think about. I guess I should make an appointment with my GI and just tell him of my concerns...ask him about the pathology (level of dysplasia, carcinoma in situ, etc.) and, also, how certain he is that the rese...

Re: Just can't let it go

...... I just feel uneasy.... And I thought pathology always says whether it’s mild, moderate, or severe dysplasia, which I thought was always present in this type of polyp.

the frustration can accumulate and drag you down.

Re: My father's ashamed of me

Tonight the pressure was so heavy that he even told me that it was ok if I lost a kidney during surgery, that's not a big deal (wtf?). When I hang up, I broke down and spoke to my husband and he confessed the most horrible thing... My dad once told him that I had to be operated on, even if I died o...
