can people - especially my boewl cancer buddies tell me about what it was like with secondaries? Now I am NOT usually a hypochrondriac (oh dear my spelling!) but things just dont feel right atm :(
i to have just been through treatment for bowel cancer, i dont know what its like to have secondaries but if you dont feel right i strongly suggest ringing your doctor and getting checked out, there is no point waiting, i know its stressful but its better to find these things early than not.
How long was it since your last checkup?
I hope that everything is ok? Can i ask what type of symptoms you are having?
thanks for writing. I dont know what it feels like to have secondaries - I think that is what is scaring me. I have pains all the way down my right side in various spots. Have had lots of check ups and a CT scan that was clear. Just been to the doc again and will try to have a bone scan done soon. It just doesnt feel right. I have MS and there could be other reasons as well like adhesions from the reversal of my illeostomy but I am not sure.
sigh.. probably nothing...
Anyway I am interested how you are going since your reversal?
hope all is good
