Hello everyone. I am a breast cancer and bowel cancer survivor. I had a mastectomy on 29th June 2011. Had four sessions of chemotherapy and then found I had a nasty tumour in my bowel that took three attempts to get it out.
Now I am effectively cancer free - not cured as I must have annual checkups. Though my last mammogram came back all clear and my tumor was found to be benign. That is the best news I could have had as I thought everything was all finished at Christmas time last year.
Now I can get by with the rest of my life. I am happy.
I look forward to meeting anyone who would like to chat with me any time.
I have been reading a book and it might be for you too as it has helped me out a lot.
It is called after cancer a guide to your new life. I got it from Breacan and have it till the 6 of June.
Hope I haven't upset you at all. Glenys 0
Thanks for the info Glenys 0.
