Hello and welcome to the Community @ES!
How are you doing today?
There are definitely other people here who have had or are living with bowel cancer. Would anyone like to offer any words of insight to ES?
Can you tell us a bit more about your situation?
I was diagnosed with bowel cancer 6 years ago, I had surgery and luckily didnt need any other treatment. Since the surgery I have been doing really well without any ongoing problems - so long as I dont eat too many nuts or curries!
I was diagnosed last year with stage 4 bowel cancer. Perforated tumour, surgery, 6mths chemo which ended in Nov last year, have now got severe peripheral neuropathy no proprioception awareness of hands and feet, but otherwise chemo went well. Then suddenly CEA markers went up in March and tumours have returned . Laparoscopy, colonoscopy and histeroscopy due in two weeks time to see what my pci readings are. If low, then I'm scheduled for the Peritonectomy /hipec op. They'll also take care of the large hernia resulting from last bowel/tumour op.
Lol, love the nuts and curries comment.
