I just completed my 5-year colonoscopy due to (1) my 3mm epithelial hyperplasic polyp of 5 years ago and
, (2) my mother's previous GI polyps
. However, the prep was bad, so the doctor only was able to examine only 75% of the colon but did get to the end of the colon. He said - no large polyps were found, no cancers; but that I need to come back in 1 year so he can check the entire colon for small polyps, etc.
Question: Is it a good (unhealthy) idea to wait 1-year before checking again?
