DEAR DR. GOTT: I am an 85-year-old active female, still playing tennis, who was rushed to the hospital this past summer bleeding from six very large polyps in my stomach. The surgeon does not recommend surgery because of high blood pressure and a mitral-valve prolapse treated with drugs. I weigh 102 pounds and am 5 feet 3 inches tall. The gastroenterologist performed a second endoscopy, found the polyps are benign, and told me to return to him in a year. Do you have any recommendations as to treatment or surgery?
