  • Hi Lou, You must be experiencing this beautiful weather too then!! 😎 it always makes me feel so much better when the sun shines..... may even get the gardening gloves out! My two scruff bag dogs are in the garden soaking up the rays ....... hope yo…
  • Hi Lou, Thank you for your support and the 'ears' for my ranting! ..... although.my GP let me down, I cant fault the hospital staff and Macmillan nurses ....they have been fantastic throughout all of this and are just as horrified at the GP's actio…
  • Hi Rob, Thank you so much for your reply. I'm so sorry to hear of your cancer diagnosis and the fact that you were also let down by a GP. We as mere patients have no alternative but to put our trust in our GP's unfortunately .......and many time…
  • HI Lou and Rob.... My partner felt the same way. The one issue that we did discuss was that my GP wouldn't send me for a colonoscopy. I was going to her for 9 months stating that I had a change in bowel habits and bleeding and felt like I had a …
  • Hi Lou and Rob, We had our first session with the psychologist yesterday. I felt a bit bad for him really. I should have told him I have a degree in psychology and was answering his questions before he asked them!! To be honest, I dont really th…
  • Hi Rob, I'm so sorry ....I've done it again.....I only read and answered Lou!...... I hope we get on with the psychologist too... a good rapport Is crucial I think. I will let you both know how things go 🤞 Laura 😁

  • Hi Rob, Sorry, I've just seen your post after I'd read Lou's! Thank you for your advice. I'm sure the sessions would only be beneficial for us both. Have a great weekend! Laura 😊😁
  • Hi Lou, Thank you so much for your lovely message...... I do have some 'low' days but I think that's more to do with the tiredness to be honest. I hope you have a great weekend too .... three days whoo hoo!! Laura xx
  • Hi Rob, Thank you for your reply. Would I be able to go and speak with my partner too, or would we have to speak seperately? We have taken this journey together all the way and I'm very, very lucky that I have been able to talk about anything with…
  • Hi Lou and Rob.... Sorry to ask, but has anyone had any experience with speaking to a psychologist about cancer etc...... I kinda want to know what to expect?! Laura
  • Hi Christine, I'm sooooo happy for you....I didn't say to you earlier but I also had a cancer free biopsy..... but they will do another biopsy in June to be sure as there was a suspicious bit that the surgeon wasnt happy with. If you need any help …

  • There will be a lot of scary scans and MRI's in the next few months I should imagine, but again, these are really quick. I should have mentioned too, that the radiotherapy sessions only took 12 minutes each! This was the one thing I was really su…

  • Hi Christine, I had a fast growing tumour as apparently, most of them are. Firstly, everybody is different but my treatment was radio and chemotherapy together. I was told to prepare for feeling awful and would have lots of side effects..... b…

  • Hi Rob, Thank you so much for your comments...... I am extremely tired today and this has been creeping up for a while, you are right. It may sound crazy, but I'm actually trying to exercise more to increase my energy! My family have been amazing…
  • Hi Christine, I was diagnosed with anal cancer in September last year. Please feel free to ask me anything ....there is no such thing as a silly question or an embarrassing question! I hope your feeling well in yourself..... I will tell you all a…

  • Hi Sam, I was diagnosed with colon cancer late last year and have had a colostomy bag fitted. Is the operation to remove the tumour or to fit a temporary colostomy? I totally understand your fear about not being well for your daughters wedding, I…
  • Hi everyone..... Don't know who crept in last night and stole all of my energy, but I sure wish they'd left me just a little bit!! 🤣😁 xxx
  • Hi Lou, thank you so much for your encouragement... I am indeed taking every day as it comes and in a very strange way, I want to wake up every day and remember cancer, as I never want to take a day for granted. Like we said, the waiting is the wo…
  • Hi Lisa, Please do let me know and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Xx
  • Hi Lou, thank you so much for your message. It is so weird after treatment as you spend so long being told where to go for treatment, when to go, what medication to take etc that once it's over and you have time to take a breath, it's a readjustme…
  • Hi Lisa....... ooh that's reassuring and worrying at the same time! ..... How did your appointment go? X
  • Hi Lisa ......I know exactly what you mean.... the waiting is unbearable......I waited six weeks to get the results of whether mine had spread to other organs. I was a jellified wreck by the end! I do hope you have good news next week. Please let…
