Bowel cancer treatment and side effects


Feeling fed up and back in hospital

Well I thought my Ileostomy reversal had gone well last Friday. I was discharged on Wednesday but Friday evening my temperature went up to 39 so back to hospital. Now feeling completely awful but it didn’t help that I was on a trolley all night. Now thankfully on a ward and just seen a lovely consultant. They think it may be an internal leak. Hopefully ct scan soon so they can decide on a plan of action 😥


Hi @Lucy118 hope you’ve had a good day it’s great to feel better. I was sent home but I’m worried because of the smell, tmi I know! Anyway I’ve to ring the gp tomorrow so 🤞going back into hospital seemed such a step backwards, but I’m not certain now, although it’s no fun you get out right! Take care and keep recovering well xx

Hi @molly2me, I’m so glad you didn’t end up going back into hospital. It sounds like they’re keeping a close eye on you which is good. Wishing you a speedy recovery


Hi @Lucy118 Hoping you are home soon! :x:


Hi @molly2me, I’ve felt much better today thank you. I think I’ll be here a little longer though until they’re happy. I’ll keep my fingers crossed your GP is happy tomorrow and your wound heals. They may want to put you on antibiotics. :x::x::x:


Hi @Lucy118 I am so sorry to read that you are back in hospital and just terrible that you had to spend a night on a trolley. Not what you need. I am so glad to hear you don’t need another operation. That’s a relief. Hope you are feeling better and can go home soon. :x::x:


How are you doing @Lucy118 ? I hope you are feeling much better! Px


Morning @Lucie and @Poppies, I am feeling much better thank you and was discharged yesterday afternoon, (apologies I put an update on Gypsy’s post). It was really lovely to be back in my own bed and I slept really well.
I am so pleased @Lucie you will be able to enjoy Christmas with chemo starting in the new year. :x::x::x:

Wonderful you are back home and in your own bed @Lucy118 I remember the feeling of absolute bliss getting into my own bed when I came back from hospital. Hope you have a rapid recovery. :x::x:


Hi @molly2me, I’ve completed chemo. I was referring to Lucie starting. It’s lovely to be home. Hopefully it won’t take too long for my bowel to reach the new normal :x::x:
