I know it's hard but try to be strong and positive you will need the strength to face whatever the outcome is going to be. Take it one step and one day at a time, that's all we can do really. I am speaking from experience having been diagnosed with stage 3 bowel cancer 3 months ago which was totally unexpected as I had no symptoms, undergone surgery and now chemo. God has been so good to me and I will pray that He will give you the same strength and courage He's given me. All the best for the future.

I am saddened with your news. Be strong and take heart that the medical teams have much to offer and it works as I can personally confirm. 🙏

Hi how are you? Did you go for your tests? I've recovered from bowel cancer - mine wasn't diagnosed but I had a haemorrhage - went to hosp and that was 2 years ago. All clear now - you need answers
