Out of the Blue

I got the results of my colonoscopy, and the polyp they removed from me turns out to be something called a tubular adenoma. This seems to be the most common of such growths, and while benign, it is something that could become cancer if left to its own nasty devices. This illustrates the benefits of such a procedure, and one of the reasons I am sharing my story is to encourage anyone out there hesitant to get their own testing done, as the inconvenience and discomfort of the procedure seem greatly exaggerated, while it's hard to overstate its benefits. Going forward, I'm advised to watch my meat intake (something I am actually better about than my repeated tales of carnivorous lust would suggest), eat my fiber and veggies, take a daily baby aspirin (I'll consult my G.P. about this first) and get re-tested in five years. That five years is apparently sooner because of this outcome, though I thought the idea was to have these done more regularly, so that doesn't really bother me. So there... if you're putting this off like I was, I hope you will reconsider, and of course, I hope your results are perfectly routine.

Since you brought it up, I did my colonoscopy last week and my results were similar to yours. A repeat is set for 5 years also. Someone asked about the age to start, and while that may be affected by family history, I believe the general advice is to do the first one at age 50.

Not to rub it in, but we here in KC are very happy with our boys in blue performance thus far. Look out Big Apple, here we come...
