Life beyond bowel cancer


2 year scans......discharged!

Hi all, not been on here for a while, been trying to get some normality with life. Well, saw my Surgeon today for 2nd year scan results and so pleased I have been given the all clear and discharged with the option to contact my team if needed. I am so relieved.
I have got a large gallstone that has been giving me some trouble but will be having that sorted in the New Year. I just want to say a massive thank you to all of you that helped me on my journey. I started it thinking dreadful thoughts, mood swings, lots of surgery and problems but you all carried me through and I am so grateful. I hope any newbies that are reading this will get comfort and reassurance like I did. Once again, thank you. :x::x::x::x::x::x::x::x:


Great news @poshbird!
Well done and upward and onwards! 😊


As a newbie heading in to see the surgeon for the first time seven hours from now, your post does help. I’m hoping it’s going to be a “caught it early” situation for me but it’s so hard to deal with as I’ve no immediate family. Wonderful people on this site are so supportive and I’m very grateful.


Brilliant news @poshbird, and good luck with that gall stone! Take very good care, Kim :x::x:

But do stick with us if you want. Some of us needed a bit of a boost when we heard that the medics were no longer interested in's a weird feeling!
