This is how it all started....

Just after Christmas, was at the doc complaining about chest pains & bleeding at the toilet.
Done the treadmill test & passed that, had the colonoscopy & here’s the sore bit. They found a cancerous tumour, Fuck, I’m only 49..
After blood tests & the usual CT scan, had a meeting with the Surgeon..
Pre-Op & booked in for Surgery on Wednesday 21/02/18
After a good chat with the Surgeon, he did say it was unusual for someone my age but hey ho, what’s happened has happened.

Thank Feck....After 2 operations & loadsa pain. Finally beginning to see the light at the end of the Tunnel. Take my hat off to all Nurses & Staff.
As far as I’m aware, all the cancers been taken out, loped, chopped, scraped, got a bag, but no further treatment with Chemo....

On the road to recovery now & getting used to the colostomy bag, well kinda.. Still a bit unsure & looking for a bit of help 👍
