I've been posting over the last few days because I've been waiting for a diagnosis for bowel/lung cancer. I've been this morning to my GP & been told xray, bloods & CT scan results are all good. I have an appt. on Saturday with a Consultant & my GP thinks he'll want me to have a colonoscopy because the CT scan couldn't see all the bowel. However, IF (& it's a big if) there is anything sinister it's VERY early stages. I'm feeling optimistic. Sooooooo - I can't say just how relieved I am as I'm sure all on this site will understand.
What being on this site has taught me tho' is just how AWFUL waiting for a diagnosis is & even more awful the terror of having a cancer diagnosis. I'm so impressed by the way people cope with cancer & how those with it are still able to support & offer comfort to others inc. me.
I'll stay on the site & let people know how I get on but also offer what support/comfort I can to others. An ENORMOUS thankyou to all those who have responded to my posts & made my wait for a diagnosis so much easier.
