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?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
