I go to Costco and they do an exam regularly that seems to be complete and accurate: I did visit Avante and they did a similar exam and similar diagnosis. Their aids were $5000+ compared to Costco's $2000. Don't believe they are that much better. Were also high pressure and not appreciated, so moved on.
I do have a history of colon cancer in my family. Several years a I had a Colonoscopy (CO) and had 4 polyps of various sizes. All turned out to be the kind that do grow into cancer. they had a name adonomous or something like that.they were removed during the CO.
two years later I repeated the test and had none. now 3 years later I will get another CO. from my understanding the precancerous ones take a long time to turn into cancer. The others are not a problem.
I have talked to a few who have done both of those choices with success. My own take is surgery has more chances of problems than the break m up procedure.
You still have the issue that I posed, what causes them and how do you prevent more from re-occurring? From my reading and talking the first need is to stay hydrated all the time. I also am including 3 Fl oz of lemon juice in my water each day.
Please keep me in the loop if you have any success finding a health care person savy and up to speed on stones. We use Wisc and Minnesota services.
I have two stones ready to come out and torment me … how do I get to a point of not having these problems? Experienced two bouts of stones so far. want to prevent any more. How do I do it? Are there any Mayo people who are experienced with this condition? Where are they located?
