I just had another colonoscopy yesterday. They only found 2 polyps which were removed and sent to path. Just wanted to let everyone know that you can beat the odds. When I had my first colonoscopy they found a mass along with hundreds of polyps. Second colonoscopy the mass was found to be gone and 9 polyps were removed none of which were cancerous. Now with this last one only 2 polyps were found. I know this does not mean my battle is over by any means but I have to be excited about this as when I saw my first oncologist they had only given me 6-18 months, that was in August of 2002. Hope eveyone else is doing well.

    JENN! Aren't you the star pupil today! AWESOME result, and thanks for sharing. And tell your first oncologist to maybe consider another form of employment! (Hopefully not choosing lottery numbers!)

    Have a great week!
