    Pathology report. one very large polyp, over 1/2 of colon obstructed.
    everything looks "good", no "cancer" in polyps removed or lymph nodes.
    worse was "high grade hyperplasia", but it was completely taken out.
    Need to do colonscopy now every year, need to do another one for a
    rectal polyp that was doing a few things we didn't like shortly
