Hi...wow, surgery to remove part of your thyroid..did you have a cyst? Are you up for sharing?
Regarding your colon, it seems that it's nothing serious considering the choice of words the doc used. "chronic", however, is what I would want cleared up and why he used that word compared with what he saw.
The fact that you have no other symptoms regarding bms or gut symptoms is a good thing.
Do, however, make a list of questions. Make sure that you get a copy of the report, a photocopy,not what your doc says it means. That's your baseline report for future reference. I'm sure if anything is abnormally going on, the doc will get you in sooner.
Seems you can take a sigh of relief. I don't know much about
thyroid, but recently another member asked the connection, and it seems that some autoimmune thyroid disease issues can trigger bowel inflammation. Don't exactly know how...but interesting none-the-less. Another question to ask the doc.
Oh, how old are you? Just interested because of the urge for you to have a c-scope.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
