what's going on?

I finally had anal surgery done to remove polyps. I was confused because I saw three different doctors who told me I had three different things. My GP said it was hemorrhoids, my proctologist said it was anal warts, and the surgeon I saw said I had polyps. In any case, whatever it was has been removed. A biopsy will be done on the polyp. Will the biopsy prove if it was a polyp or an anal wart? My symptoms prior to the surgery were: blood in the stool, mucous in stool, change in stool (almost looked like either rabbit pellets or a water, splotchy stool), and sharp, brief abdominal pain that would startle me but only last a second. Has anyone out there had similar symptoms? Thanks for any input.

Re: what's going on?

I would say your surgeon is the one to believe as he's had a closer look than the other two. The biopsy will be to find out if the polyps were cancerous or benign not to establish their authenticity.

I wouldn't start exercising so soon as there are a lot of blood vessels down there and you could start bleeding if you put undue pressure on them with exertion in fact it is almost certain that you would. You need to fully heal. Follow your surgeon's advice and take time out from the gym.
