So my diagnosis was confirmed today, i have a small cancerous thing in my colon. Apparently it looks small and early stage and thank goodness my lungs and liver are clear.
I wouldn't say I am happy, but so relieved things aren't worse. My breathlessness that you all so kindly reassured me about last week turns out to be a partially collapsed lung - phew - which will hopefully be sorted with antibiotics.
I've had 2 colonoscopies, 2x CT scans and will have a further sigmoidoscopy next week, but they also want me to have an MRI before i have the operation. What might this show that the other things don't? Or will it just give a new different viewpoint?
Also the nurse said i may need 6 weeks off work after surgery - is this normal or are they planning for worst case scenario?
Thank you so much
