I don’t how you can make that statement based on the experiences of a friend with a completely different issue. None of us are privy to the relevant facts of KnearSeattle’s medical condition.
@KnearSeattle, it’s possible you won’t need surgery at all. It’s possible that if you do need surgery, it could be done via laparoscope or some other less invasive process. It’s also possible that it might need to be done using traditional surgical methods. Whether or not you find the recovery process painful or a breeze will depend upon factors that we can’t really speak to. But the important thing is that you remove a polyp that has a potential to cause you bigger problems down the road. This should bring you peace of mind, which might well make your recovery process at least a little easier to tolerate.
I’m crossing fingers for you that the solution for this does turn out to be as quick and painless as possible.
