Life with bowel cancer


Going home to my new normal life

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has helped keep me sane over the past few weeks
I will be eternally grateful to the surgeons and medical staff who have seen me through this.
I know it’s only the beginning and who knows what is ahead but it’s good to know the support to get us through the dark days is there :x::x::x::x:


Brilliant news that you are on your way home @pippajane, nothing beats sleeping in your own bed! Take very good care, Kim :x::x::x:
