Dec 3, 2016 · Should I have a colectomy? in Digestive Health

I’m a 58 yo female, 2 weeks ago, I had a colonoscopy, ademonatus (sp?) polyps were found and removed – none were cancerous. However, there was one polyp that is on the ascending colon wall, that was flat and was not removable. My doctor wants to do a colectomy to remove it. I have no symptoms nor have any family that has had colon cancers. I am not a big fan of surgery and wonder if there is anyone out there that has been through this and did or did not have the surgery and what their experience was.
