Hi Maddie You are so right! And I'm always amazed that the question is usually accompanied by a nod of the head toward the affected area (in my case the bowel area) to ensure you know what they are talking about. I've been lucky enough to have made a very fast recovery to my bowel resection, and Ileostomy, and am going back to work on light duties this Sunday! So I'm already expecting the question (and head nods) to be thick and fast. You gotta keep your sense of humour I reckon.

Hi Maddie That's great news that the chemo is having an effect, I've got everything crossed for him that they can operate and soon! Stay positive, I know everyone on these forums will be doing the same. Cheers Wayne
