Life with bowel cancer


Given just months

Omg was told yesterday that there's nothing more they can do because the cancer has gone into the lymph in the lungs nd I've only months left. Other than some breathlessness I feel fine. Cannot believe I've so little time. My youngest grandchild is only 3 months old.


@Tonipm I'm gutted to hear this. However, despite the challenges you face, I'm glad that you know more clearly where things stand and I'm pleased that there is a way forward. The extra time will be precious. Sending you loving thoughts and hugs. B :x:


Hello @Tonipm,

You are a brave lady and I hope you get a little miracle. Got a St Theresa votive candle from church on Sunday so will be lighting for you on Friday evening and letting burn. Hope you get your miracle :x::x::x:


@Tonipm Thinking of you and hoping for that miracle ❤️💙💜💛💚

They are doing their job, you have to do yours, keep going as long as you can and believe in yourself. This must be shocking to hear, I feel so sorry. But nobody knows how long they are given to live, I'm praying for your "months" to turn into years.


I'm so sorry @Tonipm , thinking of you and sending love ❤️ you sound like quite a lady! Never give up.... lots of people on here defy the odds - Mark was given 3-6 months at Christmas and he's still going strong.

Remember the nocebo/placebo effect ...... people do get well again.

Hi @Tonipm
I'm so sorry and shocked to hear your news ❤
This isn't to undermine your medical team but is there a specialist team who could give you a second opinion on this ?
I hope you get all the support you need and more.
Hugs and prayers :x::x::x:
