I guess my colonoscopy went ok. They removed a few polyps and did several biopsies in the colon. I thought I was to young for polyps I'm only 38 but I guess you really do learn something new every day lol

Glad it went ok for you. When do you hear about the biopsy results? It is very good to get the polyp removed

Not sure the Dr. said he would release the results on the My Chart app as soon as he gets them.

Glad your procedure went well~ i am 51 now, it's been 10 years since i had my last colonoscopy done....i've had 2 in my life. Both times i had 7 polyp's removed. I guess we are never too young. I was about your age when i first had mine done too i think. I'm past due for another one, but honestly i just don't want to go through it again. I know, it's ridiculous to feel that way, but ugh!

I didn't mind the procedure at all lol I was talking to one of the nurses when he was giving me IV meds next thing I remembered I was waking up in the room with my husband. That prep was horrible though lol

Avison Yes, it's doing the prep i hate the most, the actual procedure is nothing! Maybe one day i will get up the courage to do it again. My doctor keeps nagging me to do it. But ugh.....oh well, i'm glad you got yours done and over with.

The guild lines state if you have polyps, you should have colonoscopy done every three years.

But does it matter where the polyps are that you have to have another Colonoscopy? I had mine in my cervix and in the rear.
