I thought I say hello

Diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer last year. Unfortunately the routine bowel test did not pick it as I had clear result few months before.
Following 2 surgery last year - colon and liver, I had chemo after liver surgery to clear anything that the surgery did not picked up.
Had only 3months clearance only to be told after the 2 CT that it is back in the liver. Feel really down and not sure what my appointment will be about next week.


Hi @sy, a very warm welcome to the forum although I am so sorry to hear of your recurrence in the liver.

This is not dissimilar to my situation - please have a read of my profile by clicking on my username. I was diagnosed in Jan 2015 with a recurrence in Dec 2015. I think that I felt more devastated at this point than on my original diagnosis.

I have been on permanent/maintenance chemo since then and lead a near normal life. They will come up with a plan B next week, but meanwhile, be very kind to yourself. Take care, Kim :x::x:

Hi and welcome to the forum. I must have been devastating to be told about the recurrence in your liver. I'm so sorry. It is a real setback but I'm sure that at your appointment next week your medical team will have a plan to deal with it.

Please keep in touch, big hug, Liz :x::x:


ThanksKim. Reading your comment gives me hope. I will read your profile.

Thanks Liz. I am hoping for the best next week but it's not easy.
