Ask why the GI doc did what s/he did ? Why was it that s/he was NOT able to get a specimens of the sessile polyp for pathology? If you do not like the answers, pls get a 2nd opinion.
Also find out why they want to repeat in 3 months? What will they be looking for? How long will I have to keep doing this? Again if you do not like the answer, pls gt a 2nd opinion.
Hopefully this GI doc will answer you in plain English, butt if they want to talk about your head (ie you are not following what s/he is saying) pls get that 2nd opinion.
FWIW, because you were scoped 5 years ago, you should be okay, butt again get answers you are comfortable with. This is your life and sometimes you have to be your won advocate.
Again, I hope you get answers soon.
