I had a stage 3 tumour with some spread to lymph nodes, after chemo it reduced to stage 2 tumour and a lymph node. I’ve had chemo radiotherapy and I’m having a scan next week. I’m getting really anxious as next step is surgery and a permanent stoma. I live alone (most of the time) and wondered if anyone can advise on recuperation. How long will it be before I can manage my housework, dog walking etc?
