Hello Marty. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm 42 and have never had any problems with my system. I got the testing done because my mom died at 42, my aunt at 48, my grandfather at 51, my great aunt at 79, my great grandfather at 62 and just this October my sister at 44- only 18 days from onset of pain until she died. And I need to know if I'm going to get this, and my son and all of my nieces and nephews need to be tested as well. It's a hell of a way to go and I'd rather not let it come to that point. So I think my only option is to have my colon removed and of course my lifestyle will change, but I need to be around for my son- he's only 3 years old.
