Gsy - sorry to hear about your friend.

After the age of 60 - NE Health Services (based in Gateshead) write at two yearly intervals requesting that samples of poo are sent to them, using the Testing kit provided. Very efficient service. Not pleasant to do but very important.

I totally agree with you we men do not check for these important symptoms often enough, but the NHS in the NE of England are doing a great job to help identify early onset.

Take care.

My sympathies on your loss and well done for reminding all of us we shouldn't be complacent where our health is concerned.

Fellow readers of this message board please take notice of gsy and Durham's advices. Like Durham, Mrs PWK and I get our poo tested every two years. A bloomin' performance, but very essential.

So sorry to hear of your loss gsy. Sad to lose any friend, but worse when you have been close.

As an aside, I used live just round the corner from the British Grennie, although my pals and I drank more frequently in the Royal Mortar. My son-in-law took me into the Grennie last summer. He asked me when was the last time I had been in there. A quick mental calculation and "1967" I replied. The present landlord hadn't even been born then.

Give him a good send-off GSY.
Your post is so very pertinent. Happily here in Lincs the poo test appears every two years. Not pleasant but so important.
