It does or does not sound like colon cancer? I don't understand your last two sentences. Sorry. Ive been to emergency rooms many times. They never can do much. I had a CT scan done a few months the ago in the emergency room for this leakage. They said the CT scan showed nothing. I was there for like 3 hours. My release papers said, " we found no evidence of fecal incontinence." I never complained about fecal incon. I never pooped myself.

This may sound stupid and I have no idea what a colonoscopy cost in the states, but is it a possibility to wish for some money for the colonoscopy as a Christmas gift?? If you celebrate Christmas and get gifts.
Have you applied for Medicaid? This is medical insurance for individuals below the poverty line. There are no co-pays or deductibles for those on MediCaid. Not all physicians and not all hospitals accept Medicaid, but a fair number do. Large university teaching hospitals often see and treat the bulk of MediCaid patients.
Open enrollment for the ACA remains open through 15-Dec. There are insurance brokers who provide free assistance with applying for medical insurance through the federal insurance exchange. These brokers are paid by the participating medical insurance providers. Certainly, the services of a medical insurance broker could help you in applying for an ACA plan with a federal subsidy assistance or MediCaid. Go to the ACA federal marketplace web site to find contact information for a medical insurance broker in your state and local community.
