Thinking of you all at xmas time ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ

Hi all
I don't message much these days on the forum. I do however think of you all going through bowel cancer , & the lovely people I met on here during my journey.. It has been 4 years now since I had my surgery for stage 3 bowel cancer. I was discharged Xmas eve. So this time of the year its hard not to forget. I am at the present looking after my mum who has had 2 different cancers, & I will be having my ovaries removed in the new year Due to the gene Lynch syndrome. The years have flown by. &, this forum helped me immense. &, its lovely to know that you are all here for each other. Wishing you all a lovely Xmas. A hopeful & happy new year. ๐Ÿพโค
Lots of love terri m :x::x::x::x::x:


Hi @terri m
Lovely to hear from you. How time flies by us.
Sorry to hear about your mum.
Good luck with your surgery in the new year - as you know I have Lynch. I had a preventive hysterectomy and ovaries removed and very glad that I did. My recovery was easy and straight forward so hopefully it will be for you too.

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas.
