So I had yet another procedure yesterday - the doctor, confused by the conflicting results of my MRI and endoscopic ultrasound - one looked like my polyp was possibly cancerous, the other looked not so bad - decided he was going to do his own exam with a scope and a thorough biopsy of the polyp to the core (since previous ones had, literally, scraped the surface). So I went to the hospital and was put under anesthesia . . . and woke up to the news that he'd taken out the entire thing, it was "just a polyp." It's out of my body and out of my life. I am SO happy and relieved, especially considering that after the second test - which, apparently showed really inaccurate results - I was convinced that I was looking at major surgery and an ostomy bag. So right now I'm kinda sore and on antibiotics, but compared to what it could have been? It's a small price to pay.

So, yes, FINALLY good news! The appendix still needs to come out, but that'll be a relatively minor surgery, and there's no real rush.
