Sorry about the polyps...IDK if they can be prevented, I think some people just grow them.
I am so uncomfortable about the waiting times between colonoscopies in folks like us, who have had diagnoses of cancer. THREE YEARS IS TOO LONG!!!!!
I had my 1 year colonoscopy a few days ago and the doc said, see ya in 3 years. I was like, I think that's too long. He said, we will discuss it.
He's g-d right we will discuss it. We'll discuss it in 2 years when I am back at the outpatient surgical hospital with the back of my gown open as he is inserting the scope into my rectum. It'll be an uncomfortable convo but oh well.
Hoping your polyps are not the scary type. The bastards.
