You need to talk to you physician about this. I am not a doctor. Generally a polyp is a some sort of mass. My experience is that most patients have then surgerically removed. If you don't want to do that, then I would think you would learn to live with the symptoms as you are doing. If you have any concerns or questions about surgery, I would suggest contacting your physician. Only s/he would know if surgery is right for you, and if not then how to live with the polyps. - Heather
