That procedure has never been without risks. Sometimes the clinician punctures the colon and you will have to wear a bag for the rest of your life.
And for whatever reason, you can't sue him.
That's why I passed on the procedure when my doc suggested it.

People are way over tested in this country anyway. There a fecal blood test is a much cheaper and effective way to test for colon cancer. Notice I said "cheaper". There's a blood test for just about every type of cancer, but it take money out of the medical establishment's pockets, so you aren't told about them. Do your homework and stop running to the doctor for every little thing and stop letting them use their scare tactics in order to force you into more and more and more and more tests. It's a lucrative business for them to diagnose you with cancer.
