I just wanted to advise you all, if you ever have a biopsy that turns up with any kind of dypslasis...please, get a second opinion.
I have shared this before, but I just recently got the results of the DNA. I moved from Dallas to Central Texas and recently had a colonscopy that showed ONE cell with dysplasia(very unusual). A total colectomy was recommended and they scheduled an appt with a surgeon in their facility right away. Needless to say and some of you know, I was a basket case. I would not consider surgery without a second opinion from my Doc in Dallas. A second opinion was not even recommended from the first GI Doc and surgeon. To make a long story short. The second opinion found the dysplasia so strange that they sent it off to have it DNA tested to make sure it was my cell. I just found out that the cell was contaminated and it isn't my cell! I am so excited and relieved.
My disease is progressing and I know there is a possibility for surgery in my future, but not right this second...Whew!
I really wanted to let you guys know that this kind of mistake is a possibility, so please.....get a second opinion. It saved me from a colectomy right now.
Thanks for reading this.
