Is every polyp they find 'pre-cancerous'? I only has because everyone seems to have a few on their first 'inspection' and it's not like they send it out to a lab for a biopsy they tell you that day they were pre-cancerous.

Mine were sent to a lab and they didn't say "pre-cancerous" to me until those results came back.  YMMV.  It took less than a week.

They have refined the preparation process. The last time I took the regimen of antifreeze colon slicker was not so bad. It was not picnic, but not a big deal.

Last time I had one the prep was just miralax and Gatorade. For discomfort it was not much worse than having Indian food.

Mine was precancerous so I get to do it all again in 5 years... I don’t know what they do for the non-cancerous ones...

I’m on the 3yr plan for now. I’m comfortable with that.

Found out yesterday my birth father just had 9 removed, 3 they couldn’t remove. We don’t keep in touch.

I was on the 3 year plan. Went back the 3rd year and they didn't find anything further and told me to come back in another 10 (at 50).
