I just be diagnosed with stage two bowel cancer and will have a colostomy soon. All so sudden and I don't seem to have any advice or any other help from anyone. I feel so alone and scared. Was told I have bowel cancer on the 7th of January 2014, had scans done on the 8th and was told I need a colostomy on the 9th. Shouldn't there be team meetings to discuss on how to treat me? The worst thing is, my specialist is on holidays for a week from the 10th. Should I get a second opinion?
