Hi all, I'm new to the forum. Just been diagnosed with T3N1 bowel cancer. Luckily they found the tumor whilst taking my appendix out which decided to burst while I was at work up a ladder. I had a sarcoma in the same area when i was 6yr old, so not feeling too worried about having 6 month chemo, or am I being a bit naive? I'm aware of all the risks etc after seeing oncologist yesterday, but I'm trying to fight this with knowledge of my circumstances, with an open and determined mind. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and I wish all the best to all here and their families which is undoubtedly a difficult time.
