Life with bowel cancer

You Don't know What's Around the Next Corner

Dear Mates Old and New
After loads of surgery, chemo,cyberknife, radiotherapy I am still here.
As one of the oldies and after nearly 7 years on this forum, some will know I have been struggling with a recurrence in the form of a spine tumour. I have been given an incredible piece of news. Surgeons in Edinburgh will be operating on 13th December, to try and remove as much tumour as possible and help me gain mobility and quality of life.
For me it’s just fantastic and I will work hard to get back on my feet and a brighter future. You just don’t know what’s around the next corner. Good luck to all here I will be thinking of all of you with Xmas on the horizon.
