12 Polyps Removed 12?

I am 56 year old female.

Yesterday I had my 2nd colonoscopy and the doctor "talked" to me while I was still asleep. Apparently I appear coherant and awake because this is not uncommon to happen to me.

In recovery when the nurse was checking me out, she said, the doctor already talked to you. I said no. She said nothig, you dont remember talking to the doctor. I said no, nothing.

The nurse said she removed 12 polyps. That's it.

As the day progressed yesterday, I do remember bits and pieces. I remember being asked if the doctor that did the previous colonoscopy found anything at all. I remember being asked if I have a family history of colon cancer. I remember the doctor in my face telling me "I got all. I removed all of it."

Geeze, why do I schedule my appointments on Friday...now I get to sit here until Monday before I get some answers?

Any advise?

Donna
