My husband has bowel cancer

Hi everyone my husband has just been diagnosed with stage 111 bowel cancer in his rectum.  He is the most positive person and Is convinced he will beat this.  He starts 12 weeks of chemo next week and then has an operation.  Fingers crossed everything will go smoothly

Re: My husband has bowel cancer

Hi Suem 1. Sorry to hear about your husband. It's good that he has a positive attitude. Chemotherapy is different for everyone, and it can be hard at times. Just being there for your husband will mean a lot to him and you may end up feeling helpless and sad as I do. My advice to you is to have a little time for yourself, even if it's only an hour or so. It will give you the strength to carry on. You will be stronger than you realise
