Hi my name is Di and recently diagnosed with my second cancer. Three years ago at the age of 45, i was diagnosed stage 3 bowel cancer and two weeks ago found a mass in my pelvis with my yearly ct scan. what a two weeks it has been, now home from hospital after a complete hysterectomy and removal of a 12cm tumour on my ovary which I have been told is stage 1 ovarian cancer. The doctors say these two cancers are totally unrelated. How does that happen. My head is still spinning. In one sense I am lucky I was having scans, but just feel like, here we go again. What is going to happen next. Just when you get your head around changing your way of living when diagnosed I have been whacked from the other side. Thanks for listening to me vent!
