Acromegaly and colonic polyps

Ok so I’m waiting on a date for Endoscopic Transsphenoidal Surgery to remove my pituitary gland tumour.

As I have also been diagnosed with the early stages of Acromegaly my Endocrinologist recommended that I also be screened routinely for others things.

So far I have had various heart tests and scans. The next routine test is to have a colonoscopy next week to check the bowels for polyps. Apparently colonic polyps are common in Acromegalics and can be a precursor of colon cancer. Best get checked then!

Clearly not going to be pleasant but all the same a common procedure and I’m not too worried. To be honest I’m looking forward for an autumn clean out ;0

Now for some bumfun ;0

I promise to do this
