I hope by now you have some answers! I had colon-rectal cancer in 2002. They removed a large polyp. The cancer was in the stem of the polyp so I had to have surgery. They removed 2/3 of my rectum and 18" of my colon. After that I always had problems with leakage from my bowels until I started eating yogurt everyday. That helped tremendously! I am no doctor but it doesn't sound like the polyp has anything to do with your liver. I am having problems now with hurting & bloating after I eat, nausea & change in bowel habits. I did research on here & the docs what tests I wanted run. I am not due another colonoscopy until 2015 but I insisted on having one. The abdomen CT I asked for showed I had a fatty liver and it also showed a condition with my gallbladder. Duke is a great hospital & that would certainly be my choice. I am now going to talk with a surgeon about my gallbladder & having a colonoscopy in the next month. I do pray you are better now & they have found your problems & they are not serious.View Thread
