I Hate Being an 'Interesting Patient'
Had a colonoscopy. MD removed two polyps (one benign; one pre-cancerous). However, he couldn't remove a pre-cancerous 'carpet polyp' located only a little bit in from my anus. He also found that my appendix is bulging into the colon. Had CT of appendix that was inconclusive.
I have an appointment with another G.I. MD who 'may' be able to lift and remove the carpet polyp. He may also use an ultrasound endoscope to look at my 'bulge'.
It looks like I will *certainly* have to have an appendectomy, and I may have to have surgical removal of the carpet polyp.
Oh, we had planned to be in Hawaii January and February. Maybe not, eh? I can't see the 'carpet' guy until end of November.
