    My Colonoscopy Results

    hello, gang!
    yesterday, i received a letter in the mail from emory hospital. it was the results of the colonoscopy i had on, tues. july 9th. there were check boxes on the paperwork. the box that was checked with respect to my results were written Polyp - NO CANCER. thank you, god. thank you everyone.

    the results went on to say that i must still have my second polyp removed via hospital setting. to give you a heads up, my gastro dr. found two polyps [the first was 2cm and the second 2.5cm] he wasn't able to remove the second polyp due to the size and it being near my liver [hepatic flexure] and he also said the clinic didn't have the right equipment for my sleeping disorder so, i will need to do a special type of colonoscopy in a hospital called {[EMR]} endoscopic mucosal resection. the date for that polyp removal will be thursday, aug. 22nd. i'll keep you guys posted.
