Dr could not completely remove it on first colonoscopy, took it out in pieces. Tried to tie it off to get it to "die off" ties and remains were still there a month later during second colonoscopy. The second time in, they removed more, but ended up leaving the ties in there and the results were:
Fragments of polyp removed at the prior partial polypectomy site again showed precancerous cells, but no cancer was detected.
Please see Dr. for surgical consultation as we discussed, because of the inability to safely and completely remove your large sigmoid colon polyp. This will require a surgical procedure to remove and prevent cancer from developing at this site.
I visioned removing a couple of inches to prevent future problem. Surgeon took a look and thought it was at 12cm were colonoscopy Dr said 18-20 cm in. Surgeon describe the LAR and how everything got rerouted and such. SO after it all sinking in I'm looking for the info needed to ask the right questions or agree with the recommendations.
