When I had my colonoscopy Tuesday, the doctor said he removed a small polyp and would let me know the results of the biopsy in a week or so. I was doing okay with this until today, when a close friend of mine said her husband had one polyp removed about the size of a pencil eraser and it killed him. (It had spread to lymph nodes.) I don't know why people do that. I know everyone is different, and mine's probably going to be benign, but I've been kind of worried ever since she said that. Right about now, I really could use some replies from those of you who have had polyps removed. It's hard to wait.
