I posted on 23 March that I had been diagnosed with bowel cancer, this was incorrect, it is anal cancer. I had never had a colonoscopy or scan for the so called IBS and when I eventually did have them the anal cancer was found. It appears that me GP was confused in that the Bowel Cancer Screening that was clear would rule this out, it hadn't.
Pleased to say that I am now half way through the Chemo and Radiotherapy treatment and although very unpleasant I'm on my way to recovery.
Please, please if you haven't had the appropriate investigations carried out then insist that you do. If I had insisted I could have saved myself 18 months of pain and misery.
