opinions please---a bit worrisome

I had a colonoscopy three months ago, as I am 57 years old.
They found 34 polyps. One was 2.1cm, the others were smaller, from 4mm to 9mm. Some were precancerous.
The path report reads multiple tubular adenomata with low grade dysplasia, and multiple hyperplastic polyps.

I just got done with my second colonoscopy, they wanted to check the area of the larger polyp (the 2.1cm polyp).

That area was fine, but they found 20 more polyps. The size was from 4mm to 8mm. Some precancerous again. Actually the same results as above, except no large one.

All I can think right now is "wow", and I am concerned.

The same doctor did both colonocopies, and he is supposed to be good. I don't think he missed 20 polyps the first time----but?????????

They said another test in a year.

Has anyone else had this many polyps, and having 20 more found in three months? What did your doctors advise, and what you decided and your outcome.

Thank you,
Ken
