IN Nov 03 my sister-in -law had a colonoscopy and they penetrated her intestine. It led to a very serious situation. That same day I quite reluctantly agreed to have the same test. Learning of her situation, I refused. My DR kept pressuring me, however and I had the test on Jan 15, 04. There it was big as life, a cancer at the Spleenal Flexure. I began reading about these cancers on the Internet and became very concerned, particularly about stage IV. My operation was on Feb 2, 04 and praise God, it had not reached stage IV and there was no need for Chemo or radiation. I urge everyone to get a colonoscopy NOW and save yourself a lot of pain and grief.
