Is it odd to have three colon polyps removed during the same procedure, or is multiple-polyp removal common?

No: It is not odd to have several polyps removed at the time of a colonoscopy. The intent is to remove all polyps found unless you happen to have familial polyposis in which case there may be thousands of polyps and obviously they can't all be removed. ...Read more

Can removal of your gallbladder increase your risk for colon polyps or colon cancer because of bile salt being directly dumped into your large bowels.

Can removal of your gallbladder increase your risk for colon polyps or colon cancer because of bile salt being directly dumped into your large bowels.

Chronic  iron def & anemia (5 yrs) . Iv iron good for 6 months. No endometriosis, fibroids, colon polyps, etc. Wth? (3 endoscopes, 2 colonoscopies)

May not be colon: You do not mention that you have seen a hematologist. You may need to do that for further workup, if no cause for bleeding is found. Also, there is a way to look at the small bowel to make sure the bleeding is not coming from there, called a capsule endoscopy, where you swallow a capsule with a camera in it. See your gastroenterologist. ...Read more

16mm flat polyp removed and endo clips put in to seal where removal occurred in my colon---been three days and I still feel abdominal cramp-normal?

16mm flat polyp removed and endo clips put in to seal where removal occurred in my colon---been three days and I still feel abdominal cramp-normal?

Check with doctor: 13mm is half an inch, so 16mm is a little more than that. There's some inflammation (redness, pain, swelling) at the healing spot, but one can call the GI doctor to see if the healing is on schedule, compared with the doctor's experiences with his other patients who had similar polyps removed. One should be ready to describe the quality, severity, location, and duration of "cramps" to the doctor. ...Read more
