Thanks for the reply, qs for the gp, I can't get an appt, I spokebto a dr last week, he didn't even know I'd been diagnosed, to get a telephone appt with the gp is a devils own job, I'm currently chasing up the colorectomy nurse who rang me, to see if she can help. My little island is getting smaller, and I'm so stressed, I don't know what to do, I cannot get a definitive answer, although on report it says its malignant, yet people say wait for the biopsies to get back, I'm lost and its not helping me when I have nowhere to turn. Thank you for replying, I will try to get past the receptionist at my go surgery, which is awful, I said last week I may have cancer, and ahe said ring back after 12pm, it was 11.57am, its ridiculous, my husband couldn't see a gp last year, they said his stomach pain was stress, 4 months later, he was rushed to hospital and nearly died, his gallbladder was gangreneous, he was hours away from death. Thanks take care

Hi, I'm 54 and had a colonoscopy 11 days ago, and they found a 30mm malignant tumour, and some other suspicious lesions. I have 2 scans coming up, within the next week,yet I haven't heard about all the biopsy results. I'm confused the nurse said that they may nit be malignant, yet the paperwork gave to me says that I have 2 malignant tumors, another that is probably malignant and a suspicious lesion, how long do I have to wait for any answers, my Dr's are no help, amd I feel like I'm on an island that is shrinking ad no one can help me. Does anyone else know anything about how I get results, my gp says they hospital will write to me, but that's all I have got from them. I'm sorry if this is me over reacting, but I amst a loss as to why a nurse said wait for the biopsy results, and paperwork says I have malignant tumours. I feel like I'm drowning, and everyone around me is either treating me with kid gloves, or not letting me do anything for myself,not even make a brew. Any help would be very much appreciated.
