Bowel cancer treatment and side effects


A day in hospital

Well folks unexpectadly ended up in a and e tbis morning with severe right side abdominal pain. Was then refered to pinderfields surgical assesment ward. They first suspected appendix then a blockage. Bloods came back fine. Xray didnt really reveal much there was faecal matter there but not blocked. So ct scan tomorrow.
I have also not passed any wind for 24 hours until the past hour and it has given me a bit of relief. I am also constipated which dosnt help. So we will see what tomorrow brings. :x::x:


Oh no @gun-dog-lass
You really aren't doing very well at all. I do hope they sort you out soon. Sending lots of hugs. :x::x:

Morning @gun-dog-lass sorry Ive only just seen your thread, and I'm so sorry you ended up in A&E. I'm glad your pain has eased, all of this can be so stressful, but I'm glad to hear you are having a scan today and your team are being proactive. Best of luck to you, hope all goes well today, love D :x::x::x::x::x:


Sorry to hear you're suffering @gun-dog-lass. Good luck with your scan today and I hope you're on the mend soon :x::x:


Glad to hear the trooper is trumping again @gun-dog-lass I'm always in awe of the importance of regular toots and poops in bowel cancer. The minute one dissapears, our bodies are in chaos! Hope today is a better one! ❤️????


@gun-dog-lass good to hear you're farting nicely and it's helped with the pain! Good luck with your scan today. Sending love :x::x::x:
