Bleeding for 5 days, colonoscopy and 15 mm polyp removed
Well we are playing the waiting game like so many people at this stage have to do. My dad had 5 days of bleeding from his rectum so they got him in for a colonoscopy right away. They removed a polyp that was, I believe 15mm does that sound right? Couldn't have been 15 cm could it? Do they usually measure by mm or sm? ALso another smaller one. Dr. said that as the size of polyps go. This was a big one.
They had to wait a few days before they could the colonoscopy due to the fact he just had his pacemaker replaced a month agao and is on blood thinners. They took him off of the blood thinners and it took an unusually high number of bags of plasma and two Vitamin K shots to thicken his blood up enough to do the procedure. They were very surpirsed at that. Could that mean anemic?
They say they will have the results back sometime next tuesday and he should stay of the blood thinners until that time.
Okay so with such a big polyp taken out and the fact that he had the bleeding are those most likely bad sign?
Thanks everyone and good health to all
