Vac, sorry for your loss. It must have been tough to be fighting one problem then getting smacked with a tragedy from a totally unexpected source. I have been thru two colonoscopies with no problems but, as with all medical procedures, there is always a risk, albeit in this case, supposedly rare. Keep the faith.

I'm so sorry to hear of your Fathers loss. Its ironic that you mention the colonoscopy, since I am a 3 1/2 yr survivor of PC and just this last Monday had my first colonoscopy. My Mother (in her 80's) had a similar circumstance during her last colonoscopy and was in very serious condition for some time. Unfortunately sometimes the recovery is not possible.

I know you will miss your Father, but at the same time I am sure you have many precious memories you will recall now and in the future.

Again, our condolences for your loss.
