So, had my second session of chemo y'day, when the bombshell was dropped that due to the secondary tumour that had been found at the bottom of my rectum, there is a very real possibility that my bag, Margot, will need to stay with me for life. Gutted!
I appreciate that having a life at whatever cost is better than no life at all, but still feel utterly cheated that at just 33yrs old, I may forever have to have a bag. Ahhh well, guess it could be worse. Just have to remain positive that the chemo and radio will do their job, reducing and stabilising the tumours to prevent a permanent ilieostomy and can have the reversal.
Positive thoughts my way please!! Sorry if this is a bit down, just need somewhere to vent!
