Hi, The last 3 weeks have been such a blur...... 3 months ago I found out I was low in iron, since then I have had 2 iron infusions done, and still low, so the doctors sent me to go have a colonoscopy and endoscopy done, to see why I am so low in iron, where they found a 5cm tumor in my bowel. (Two times in the last 3 months of the low iron I was constipated these are the only 2 symptoms I had, and i didnt think anything of it) 1 week later after having the colonoscopy I was in having surgery they took 50% of my large bowel, the tumor and 37 lymphnodes (which were all negative) 10 days in hospital now out and recovering... I'm still in denial.... and disbelief... as to what's happened in the last 3 weeks.... Any advice would be amazing and would love to hear what people have to say or talk to people who have had the same thing. Sarah
