I'm new on here but have been battling bowel cancer since 2011. Just like all of you, it's been a rocky road. Currently, this is the third time it's appeared and is around the split in the iliac artery in a number of the lymph nodes. My oncologist has advised no treatment at the moment - the two main tumours are too small (11mm and 18mm) and they are just monitoring me. I am finding this quite tough as in the past I have had treatment and this makes you feel that at least you are fighting it! My health currently is fine which is another reason not to do the chemo yet they say. Just wondered if anyone else is in a similar position?
