As some of you know, I had an endoscopic procedure to remove a large flat polyp from my cecum that had high grade dysplasia. (one step before cancer)
The original plan was to remove it in three procedures with this being the first and, I believed he was going to burn it out in stages using argon plasma coagulation. As it turns out, he used a dye to find it's outer margins then, inflated it with saline and, removed it with a snare then sealed the edges of the area with the argon plasma coagulation. He believes he got the whole thing.
I just now received the result of the biopsies by phone, NO CANCER.
The bad news is he wants me to come in in three months to take biopsies and again at 9 months after which, I could have any future colonoscopies locally.
