I'm hoping to hear other people's experiences with symptoms and bring diagnosed with right sided bowel cancer, if possible.
I am 32, so I don't think my GP is taking me seriously.
I had a colonoscopy 2years ago for a change in bowel habit and intermittent swelling in the right lower abdomen, after seeing a private surgeon. It was normal and biopsies normal too. Very reassuring at the time. I've been well since then until 5 months ago when I developed a constant pain in the right hand side. It is pretty much always there, a dull ache, and much worse when I'm moving around, and I can feel a sensation of fullness there in the area of pain. I can also now feel my right side colon all the way up to my ribs which is new. The last few days I've had a stabbing pain around my liver and collar bone too.
I know it must be hard for those with diagnoses to try to answer and reassure us worriers, and it is really helpful and kind.
I just hate being brushed off because I'm young.
Going to see a private colorectal surgeon again in 2 weeks which is next available, which will be worth every penny.
