Anyone have any Stomach Polyps?

VSG on 05/29/13

Hey guys! Pre-op me again! Had my endoscopy yesterday to find the source of my tummy pains. They found stomach polyps and did a biopsy on them. Was wondering if anyone has had this before? Did it affect surgery for a VSG? and again, ty guys for all your responses!

Hi, I had the Upper GI done and found out i had polyps of the esophagus.  I then went for a gastroscopy and had one of them biopsied.  It all turned out ok and the nurse never said it made a difference only that they may want to do the test themselves.  I see the inernist next week so I will likely find out then if it is a problem but so far it's a go. Not sure if this helps.  Good luck

oh ok. I know i emailed my surgeon about it, and he says it should be ok for the VSG, because if they appear later, you can still do endoscopy. but i wanted to know if others have dealt with it before. thank you for your response!

I had polyps in my stomach, they did a biopsy and everything turned out fine.  It didn't delay my VSG surgery.
