On the 13th February 2013 I can, without too much risk of disagreement, say that I had a bad day. I had an appointment with Dr Ryan Ponnudurai at the Prince Court Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur. He told me that I had oesophageal cancer. That was the bad news. The good news was that it was operable (diagnosed early enough unlike 65% of patients). Today, I reflect on the fact that more than 85% of those diagnosed on the 13th February 2013 are no longer with us. I have been lucky. Even those who survive rarely experience the almost full recovery that I have had. Left with an unpredictable digestive system I just get on with things and pretend I'm normal. Thanks to everyone who has helped, supported, prayed, written and just been there.
I have already posted this on Facebook and Linked In. I hope that it raises awareness
