My Dad is a very healthy 87 year old man. He has had no appetie for about 6 weeks and has lost 8 lbs. down to 145 not good. He has had blood work, cat scan, stomach inspection with tube thing all with no apparent problems, Now they want to do a Colenoscopy. If there any way to get to the heart of this more quickly? HELP
