    colonoscopy and biopsies

    Procedure or Surgery

    Had a colonoscopy and biopsy's. The surgeon wasn't concerned and didn't find anything to worry about. The oncologist insisted on getting biopsies due to the last pet scan lighting up. The doctor took nine biopsies and found a polyp which he also biopsied. Got the results yesterday and still cancer free.

    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Agree
