On a whole I am well. Adjusting nicely to this new way of pooping. It can be full of surprises. But so far nothing I can't handle and a hell of a lot better then being backed up with that stupid stricture.
Talked to my Gastroenterologist last night (yeah the actual doc called me. Not one of his nurses, man did I feel special for a moment). Long story short, the duodenum polyps need to come out, like now. Given that my common bile duct is progressively getting larger, the polyps are growing more rapidly then we had hoped (just my luck). My GI consulted with the other docs in his practice and they all came to the same opinion. Due to the size and pla
cement of the main polyp they don't feel there is a doc in the state of Michigan who is qualified
enough to attempt to remove them. So as of right now we are looking into Mayo, Cleveland Clinic or Indiana U. At least those are the places my GI recommends. The doctors feel I need to have these little suckers removed within the next two months. Hey, at least that means maybe we can get all this under this years deductible.
Alright, I'm off to bake some pumpkin cookies. I like this having an appetite again. My body is desperately trying to regain the 25 lbs I've lost over the past 3 months!
