Hi MrMagoo- I too am sorry to hear of your loss. My friend's father-in-law died the same way. He had symptoms of IBS for about
a year (I'm surprised they let it go that long w/no testing- the MD's.)- diahrrea, severe stomach pain. Finally after almost one year of this, they give him a cat scan and low and behold, it's cancer, in advances stages at this point. He died not long after that. It was sad and I wish your family wasn't going through this. But thank you for sharing and reminding us all to advocate for ourselves. I wholeheartedly agree with you. Good luck and my God bless you and your loved ones during this difficult time.
