I was diagnosed at the end of May this year . Following six months of not keeping food down and loosing five stone , I was also very anemic .I had an endoscopy which showed nothing and 2 weeks later a CT scan when I was told I have bowel cancer .I was then waiting for surgery but this then became emergency surgery six weeks ago .and had right hemi colostomy . I was told the tumour was large and stage 3 and it had gone into my lymph nodes and thank goodness no where else . I am seeing my oncologist this afternoon and hope to start a plan . I have been reading your amazing stories in this forum and have finally plucked up courage to add mine . As this now makes it real and I am stressed and worried about what will happen to me . I am very lucky to have a wonderful husband and I know he is worried too .
