Today I had my second colonoscopy (1st and history http://csn.cancer.org/node/251118). As few posters suggested in the earlier thread, the doctor seems to want to confirm and verify the first diagnosis. Having read and seen the earlier scans and colonoscopy and read the histological report, he does not seem too impressed with the earlier diagnosis. He said many promising things after my second colonoscopy. I talked to him afterwards, and he said we’ll have our own diagnosis, and I’ve been scheduled for admission on Saturday and my operation will most likely be on Sunday.
I threw at him the few things I’ve learned so far, most importantly the inclusion/exclusion of “cimetidine” and the protocol I will be following pre and post operation. He said until we are certain of what we have, it is premature to talk about what will and will not be in for me. He however said something a bit strange to me: there is a high possibility he will be doing the surgery *endoscopically*. Is that good, bad, normal, abnormal, weird?
