Warmest Regards from Colorado – A Letter

We received the following letter and wanted to share it with our readers.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly!  The answers you provided make a lot sense to me and I ‘m glad to know that you agree that it is reasonable to start with the polyp removal and then see how things go.
