In brief: Hard ?
Uterine polyps are not that common to begin with.
I am not sure what procedure was performed to remove them. If that was a d&c, then the polyp or polyps got removed entirely and it should not regrow quickly unless it is cancerous. If it regrew and the biopsy was not cancer, then it could have been that it was not removed in the first place. Anyway, we need more details on that.
