Colon
     The man across the street now has colon cancer . His first doctor a yr ago did his whole GI tract and found and removed polps in his Colon and found nodules in his O (E) plus just barretts .He said come back in a year .Just barretts can't kill you but nodules CAN turn to cancer.I demaned he go to my doctor and he went though his whole GI tract again . This is like 2 months after the first one and EMRed all the nodules out in two sessions ..The Colon looked fine..Now one yr later they checked out the whole GI tract again and the O (E) looks normal execpt for a little just barretts . But in the colon they found a HUGE cancerous polp..He going in on the 15th for another whole GI tract looksee and a Pet-scan,EUS all in one day..Thats why I like a EGD every year for just barretts things CAN change fast in some people like ME..His first doctor had him on 80mg of nexium for a year .I caught that and my doctor cut it in half..You have to talk to doctors and people who have this and SEE what their doing then work with your doctors..He spends no time on this he kinda does what his doctors say . In other words he doesn't do his homework .We will see how it gos .
    My doctor told he has seen doctors do a lot of crazy treatments to people. Their not Gods and I found a few who messed me up..

Colon
    After like 8 months of radition treatment ,like every 2 weeks it is gone for now ..The doctor kept putting off cutting it out because he has COPD really bad . So in this case he was very lucky BUT it should come back unless he can get off painkillers (bad back)..He's going in at the end of the month to cut on his neck BUT will have to take a blood test to see if he STILL smoking then it's a BIG NO ...He's one of those people who just say yes. I told him you had 7 cut jobs on your back " What makes you think this one will turn out better " ..I think the doctor needs a new car ..There is tons of money here for health care BUT sometimes it works agaisnt you..I keep pushing him to get everything fixed because very soon we will be like the NHS.
