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.

Dear Purrfect - this is indeed very optimistic news.  I can so easily imagine how this has made you feel.

I could not have put it better myself what you say about 'what being on this site has meant to you ... '.  I think you speak for us all.

So so pleased to see this latest post from you.

Hi purrfect, I’ve just seen this, and so glad to see you post. This is all really positive news for you, and I’m so pleased. Hopefully all will go well with your appointment tomorrow too.

We all understand the awful fear of waiting for a diagnosis, and being able to reach out a virtual helping hand to others in the same position is such a positive thing. I’ll be glad to see you still post and look forward to hearing how you get on. It’s lovely you want to help others and I’m sure that’s going to be of huge benefit both to them and you. 

So happy for you!! xx

That is so good to hear and especially that your tests were all good which is a big plus sign. IF there is anything then they will be able to treat it but as your blood test came back normal then there is a very good chance that it is nothing to worry about.

You can now relax and enjoy the weekend. This will bring hope to all those waiting for diagnosis.

 

Enjoy your weekend. xx

Good morning -  how very kind of you to remember & post. I'm just about to set off for my appt. Not feeling too bad at all really given my other results. My GP thinks the consultant will just want to talk to me & might want a colonoscopy so we'll see. I'll post later.

Thank you again, it's very much appreciated. xx
