Hi there, first time using this forum. After my first colonoscopy, my gastro doctor said that I was to make an appointment with him in 3 months time. Well the soonest I could get in to see him is 5 months later. In the meantime my family doctor told me that the info that was forwarded to him from the other gastro doctor, was that I had multiple Polyps (not sure how many or wear they are located) and that some were precancerous.
Ok I have lots of questions and I realize you guys are not doctors but a little insight would be nice.
Here come the questions:
1) How many are considered to be multiple
2) If 3 of my siblings (older than me- I'm the baby 47 yrs old) have had 3 or less polyps removed each could I maybe have Lynch syndrome or Familial polyps
3) Can anyone feel their polyps when standing up because I KNOW I can.
4) Has anyone had back pain on one or both sides due to polyps. I know it isn't anything to do with kidneys. Blood, Urine and ultrasound confirmed all of that.
Hope to hear from someone
