Hi I'm not sure where to post this but I'll try here. On Friday I had a colonoscopy 4 years after my last one which was normal. This time the notes said I had some polyps removed but that was it. The surgeon didn't speak to me and I was told to book in to see my GP in two weeks.
Can anyone tell me if I need to be worried? All it said was polyps removed.
Any information would be great thanks.
Just because you had polyps removed doesn’t necessarily mean anything bad. Usually, while a colonoscopy is happening any polyps they come across will be removed in the normal course of events. I’m not sure if they then get sent away for testing or not, I assume they do. Then the results would be sent to your GP. That’s the reason they would have told you to make an appointment with your GP for 2 weeks time. Hopefully you will have nothing to worry about. Take care.
