JCW's E/C STORY
So my family doctor here in Littleton (Dr. Raymond Rupel) decided I should have a complete upper and lower GI series and referred me to a gastroenterologist (Dr. Bahri Bilir with Arapahoe Gastroenterology) to perform a complete colonoscopy (an endoscopic examination of the interior of the rectum and colon) as well as an EGD (Esophagogastroduodenoscopy - an endoscopic examination of the interior of the esophagus, stomach and initial portion of the duodenum, done by passing a lighted tube down your throat with a small camera on the end to see what's going on and to be able to perform a tissue biopsy).However, there are three very special folks I want to thank by name: Dr. Myles Guber, Dr. Bahri Bilir and Richard Lee R.N.In August, I had another EGD done by Dr. Bahri Bilir because I had some concerns with a "feeling" I was having down in my throat for a few months.During this procedure, he did find a "nodule" in my remaining esophagus and went ahead and removed it for biopsy and also took biopsies of several other areas of the esophagus just for "precautions sake".After the procedure, he was very positive in his reinforcing his belief that there would not be any problem and that he felt sure that it was not cancerous at all.He said that he was pretty sure that it was scar tissue from the previous 2 surgeries back in 2002.
