5 Years today!
Thought I would let you know, and to hopefully provide hope too, that today marks 5 years since I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer. And what a five years it has been…..
6 months chemo,
1 week radiotherapy,
1 bowel resection with an added stoma,
1 liver resection,
1 stoma reversal
2 lung ablations across both,
3 lung resections across both.
Road map body
Lots of tears
A few tantrums
Lots and lots of laughs and good times 😀!
I still have 5 little areas of concern on my right lung which are currently being closely monitored, which at this time I am more than happy with.
Importantly for me throughout all the past 5 years, and for future years, is to try live life in the best way I possibly can. I think cancer should fit into my life and certainly not the other way around.
I have been lucky that I have an amazing husband, daughter, grandsons, family, friends and an amazing team of specialists and nurses. And of course this amazing forum which has truly been a lifeline!
Happy Sunday all and heres to us all striving in spite of this damn disease!
Love to you all ❤️
