The other day I went to get an explanation of the results from my EGD.
I had asked Satoshi to meet me at the hospital so he could listen with me (because I don't understand all the medical terms in Japanese), but he was running late and by the time he arrived, I was done.
Anyway, the doctor showed me some of the photos taken by the camera, and explained the results.
He had said a couple of words in Japanese that I didn't understand, and when I asked what they meant, he looked at me like "oh yeah, I forgot you were a foreigner"...
Then he decided to speak a little english and said, "do you know b-9?"
When I first heard it, I had thought he was talking about some kind of code because of the way the word was pronounced, but after prodding a bit, I realized he had meant "benign".
Anyway, for now, there is no need for worry, no need to remove any of the polyps either.
I just need to make sure to get physical check-ups regularly.
Relieved about the results.
