Thanks for the replies...
I was just recently diagnosed with UC in September of this year and really didn't know too much about it. Then in October I had my first ever colonoscopy done and went into it blind, not knowing anything. It's all been pretty much a whirlwind for me and I totally agree with you that my doctor should have been more direct about the polyps given the circumstances. I have since learned to ask and question everything they tell and prescribe me. And I didn't even think about getting a copy of my colonoscopy, good point. I now, also, get copies of my blood work results as well.
My doctor said nothing about another colonoscopy which I'll surely get scheduled in a year to see what the results will be.
And Old Hat, it was just a shock to my system that polyps were found because, really, being diagnosed with UC and everything that followed came totally out of the blue. I was humming along fine and then all of sudden this happened and to find polyps really scared me because up until this point, I thought polyps meant cancer and nothing else. So, it was a little suprising when my doc said not to worry about it. But my doc knows more about this than I do and I was so desperate at that point for any good news that I took it as is but since started to question it.
And thanks agian for all of this advice. I really, really appreciate it.
