Grandfather was in horrible pain; nightmarishly skinny. The last time I saw him in the hospital is forever forged in my memory, stricken with colon cancer. Wife's dad also fell to this, though her mother contends he did get a colonoscopy. One would do well to consume less food that may increase the risk. The test is cheaper to prevent than treat. That is why our insurance will pay the bulk of the test. Hopefully other members will relate (or reaffirm) their experience.
