Irwin, I hope she's ok.  Remember, they're just polyps, even if one is bad, it's gone - hopefully they won't have to do further surgery.  It's just a year ago that my husband went for his first colonoscopy and they found cancer - he did have 14" of his colon removed, but they got it all with the polyp removal, he's free and clear now.  He went for his follow up colonoscopy just two weeks ago and although they pulled a polyp out, it wasn't even one that would eventually go bad.  My fourth test is coming up on December 7th (family history, my father died at 65 of colon cancer and I'm a polyp factory, too).  Early detection is the key.  Let us know what happens!

done.  give her my best.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Irwin you got it buddy.  Remember most of the time it's nothing but most docs know it's better to be safe then sorry.  Hopefully it's just them being safe and everything will be just fine.   Just try and not let the anxiety get to ya docs sometimes in this day and age get us worked up over stuff just due to poor communication.

Irwin:

To Jenny I and Tracey will be praying and keeping good thoughts. I have working midnights, which means I an usually sleeping during the evenings (nap at least) so I'll try being around today if you are in chat :)

Oh... Tracey is doing well, she is back to work (actually since Friday - which I was against, it can be very stressful as she is a supervisor of three women and Tracey is "Supervising Principle Payroll Specialist" a fancy title and raise) and she has blood work done tomorrow, the doctor will have it by Friday.

She is a bit tired (to bed expected when you lose a kidney, the remaining one is now doing all the work and it can only filter so fast - so she will be tire) but her spirits are good and although we know her remaining kidney isn't all that good according to her last report. The last report (doctors assume her kidney died BEFORE last blood work) so if it did, the new numbers should be the same or worse, it can not be better.

Just thought everyone I'd want to hear an update would find it in this post - not meaning to hop on your post, all our friends read each others post, I love everyone who knows Tracey and me in the forum - I know we have a lot of friends having us in their prayers, and even if we are just in your thoughts (for those of the non-praying kind) I know some positive energy is flying about, sent from your thoughts, out there fighting like bloodcells running to an infection. Your thoughts and messages are what keeps me lovin' the forum and such great great members. Peace.

Good Luck with prayers on top from The Claytons.

Thank you all for you kind words. I'm just a bit scared I could go through this and not think twice about it but it's a bit different when it's your wife.

Irwin, you will both be in my prayers. I know its tough to not worry about stuff like this, even when people tell you it could be nothing its still a stressful situation.
I wish you both peace and a Happy Thanksgiving with those cute little grandaughters of yours.

Irwin, I found myself in your shoes about three years ago and don't ever want to be there again. It is terrifying because you can't stop asking "what if..." but in reality it usually isn't to big of a deal.  I will be praying for you both but please remember that for my wife and I, the most damaging part was the stress from all the worry over something we couldn't change.  Take her out for a nice evening and let freinds and family do the worrying part for you. :)
If it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger... Or maims you for life.

Wait a minute, I missed that on the first reading of your first post.  You mean they took polyps and didn't biopsy them??!?  That's assinine!  Now that the polyps are gone there's nothing to biopsy.....so there's no way of knowing if those polyps are the type that would go bad, or were just harmless polyps (they can tell that via the biopsy).  I'd be righteously angry off at them.  Never mind in this day and age of 'cost effective', that's really poor planning.  I'm sorry you guys are having to worry for this long.

There's the chance the doctor decided visually that there was no problem, but he should have indicated that - you should be done with this.

   There was something wrong when they were in there so they didn't take any thing out That's all I know for now. The wife is not the best at telling me stuff she doesn't under stand what the doc is saying he is good doc he looks at the hole picture the family the grandkid's every thing. I'm sure he will get in contact with me soon to fill me in.
