Think the beast is back
@Baxter2 asked how I was doing . So this is what's been happening .
I finished my last chemo at the end of January and all seemed ok . I went back to work in April and tried to put everything behind me and get on with life . I started having pains on my right hand side again , but put them down to too much activity . We had an amazing holiday in Hong Kong and Bali but the pains got worse . I contacted my colorectal nurse two weeks ago and as I had a scan last October , she suggested I had another one last week . no follow up appointment had been made ,as I was told you will probably get a letter with the results . I phoned on Tuesday as the pain was so intense and as my colorectal surgeon is on leave I was asked to go in on Thursday and I was seen by the head colorectal consultant who examined my scan .So I now have a 3 cm tumour in the same place it was before in my bowel . He said surgery to remove it wasn't viable and he would discuss me at the MDT next week with my oncologist . He is so good in as that he is seeing me next Thursday before his clinic starts so he can share the plan with me .
I am so sad as I thought the beast had been beaten , but we had a wonderful holiday and at least we had that worry free .
