Well, I went to see my mums consultant last week to talk about mums treatment etc and asked him what mums prognosis would have been had she asked when she was diagnosed. Some of the answers I got from him helped a little, I found out mum lived longer than they predicted she would, go mum!!
But then it was suggested that I be screened early for bowel cancer at age 40, in 2 years time.! This really scares me. I was told mum could have had cancer 10 years before diagnosis. That's 10 years of living her life without cancer treatment, without the hell of going through what she did.
My question is who thinks going for screening early is a good thing or should I just let life's journey take me wherever it may lead.
Mum and I had many discussions about this...
