I have just had my gastroscopy and colonoscopy today and been told I have bowel cancer. I am lost for words and don't know where to start. I will have CT and MRI scans in the next 2 weeks to determine progression and treatment options (if any)
I have had abdominal pain and rectal bleeding for a good few months and the doctor was continually insistent it may have been internal hemorrhoids and other gas problems and gave me repeated prescriptions for same meds that was not working. Only recently was I referred to a specialist and have had to wait 7 weeks for the procedure today.
