Six months after the all clear
I finished surgery followed by 6 months of chemo in November 2017 and, after scans and a colonoscopy, was given the all clear in January this year. I've just had bloods taken for the first check up and there is nothing to worry about.
All through this experience I have tried to feed myself as well as possible with plenty of protein, vitamins and minerals and very low added sugar or starch.
I am so happy to report that this week my husband (who had major spinal surgery 18 months ago) and I were able to walk the Helvellyn ridge in the Lake District - 20 miles in one day and 4000 feet of ascent. It took us 12 hours but we had chosen June as the month with the longest days and we are VERY thankful that the NHS have looked after us both so well. P.S. He is 68 and I am 69.
