My brother just got his biopsy reports back on the 5 polyps they removed. Not good news all of them were malignant! The Dr is pretty sure they got it all and that chemo won't be needed but he has to have another scope in 6mo. then every year after that. He also scared him enough that he got a hold of both of us and told us what's up. Which means my Dr is going to want to check things out soon would be my guess.

Morale of the story is don't put this off guys! Its really important and your life could very well depend on it.

Heck...l’m not sorry to hear that. Just like me...it probably saved his life! It would be good if there was no issue at all, but it’s fantastic they got ‘em and now have a pathway to being healthy. You know what I mean.


So...when they did my second scan, a few years ago, it was the standard ten years after the first one, in which they found a couple of polyps...no big deal. But on that second one they found OVER 60 POLYPS!!! I am totally the poster child for growing the damn things. All or most were/are PRE cancerous. So they got everything in time. Then I was put on the annual program. They did a DNA work up on me to maybe find a genetic marker (there are over half a dozen known) that matches a “pre disposition” to growing polyps. Found nothing. But since it takes five years or so for a polyp to grow to a point of being actually “cancerous”...so long as they go in annually and clean things out (I pop about twenty new ones out per year) I’m in no danger. Whew!

My concern is now...if I grow stuff like that so significantly...and there’s no DNA indicators that match a typical known pattern of growing lots of the little devils...then my situation is UNIQUE. And if that’s the case, it could be that if I’m growing ‘em there...where else might I be growing ‘em? Maybe nowhere. Maybe everywhere.

So...taking every day as a the gift it is. No complaints so far.
