Well it certainly has been a while since I’ve updated. In short, the coast was declared clear and I’m only due for another colonoscopy in 3 years time. Maybe I’ll be more diligent than the recommended timelines. We shall see.
Equally amazing is that despite what I thought was a write-off in terms of my ability to get life and/or critical illness insurance, I was able to qualify for both. And at that, without a “rating” – meaning, I’m not considered an elevated health risk.
In other words, despite a large polyp, the underwriting world sees me in the same risk category as an average healthy 40 year old.
