I have also started looking into a specialist to deal with the polyps in my duodenum. I contacted a "Cancer Center" here in Grand Rapids. Well, after being transfered to four different people, I finally get a young lady who thinks she can help me. First, I ask if she is familar with FAP. Which she responds that she is. Then, I explain that I am having a total colocetomy, but I am looking for a specialist to help with the poylps in my doudenum (actually I don't even say duodenum, I say upper small intestines). She responds with "Oh let me transfer you to urology" Ha! I told her at this point I'm not having any problems in that area, and I thanked her for her time. I considered explaining to her that the small intestines has nothing to do with the urinary tract, but decided not to waste any more of my time. That's what I get for trying to find something a little closer to home. It is looking like Cleveland Clinic is the best and closest place for this.

T minus 14 days
Why are insurance companies such a pain to deal with? After being on hold for an hour, I finally get a live person to talk to. And this live person's answer to my question is "to look at on their web page, I should be able to find all my answers there". Hello?! I didn't just wait an hour for someone to tell me to look on the internet, thanks.
