My 1st post here after my partner has just been diagnosed with colon cancer. Firstly, thank you to everyone who posts & replies on here - you've been a huge source of comfort & information since the start of our journey here.
I'm a little worried about my partner - she was diagnosed with colon cancer after experiencing blood in her stools - she had a colonoscopy which revealed a tumour. The hospital and doctors have been amazing and she's now booked in for a resection in two weeks time.
in the meantime though - she's having quite large losses of blood from her bottom - large clots of blood - sometimes with bowel movements and sometimes just appearing on their own in her underwear. We feel positive knowing she's going for her surgery in 2 weeks but it's quite worrying waiting till then - is this normal? Does this mean it's getting worse? Any advice or experience appreciated!
