My husbands half sister recently had most of her stomach removed due to polyps in the lining of the stomach.She was told this is hereditory.My husband can only eat certain foods or he gets nausea.Could there be a connection? What tests should he have and can someone tell me the name of this condition?
Lisa, check out familial polyposis or Familial Adenomatuos polyps, has he had colon checked. the only good news if they are small is that their incidence in getting to cancer is smaller than if they were in colon. Did he have an endoscopy done? I would thing that just nerves would get you nauseaus. I have had some polyps but just in last 6 month due to stress they have grown in numbers where we can't even count them no more.....I guarantee you mine are mostly stress related where your acid levels kick them up a notch.
