Cancer

Well guys and girls, last week we were given the news that my wife has Cancer
She has been off work now for almost 14 weeks with Diverticulitis and two weeks ago finally had the operation to remove the blockage and part of the stigmoid that had the Diverticulitis.
On thursday just gone, we had an appointment to see the surgeon that carried out the operation and thought we were simply going to be told when the next stage of the operation was going to take place, this involved reconnecting the the piping inside, so to speak.
We were not prepared for the news that he gave us, apparently the blockage was a tumour and had ruptured with a chance that it may have spread the cancer cells throughout the body.
He said that she would have to have Chemo as a precautionary step as he felt confident that when they removed the blockage, they had removed all the bad bits, they also carried out checks on bllod vessels and lymph nodes in the surrounding area and all tested clear.
So now we are off to the Oncology department tomorrow for a CT scan and again next friday for a neeting with the cancer specialist, presumably to go through the process of what happens where and when.
Bit shocked at first and completely numb but must stay strong for her, as she battles through this.
Any advice would be most welcome...


Kev

Funny enough we are both from high wycombe..

My mum is going through breast cancer atm, shes finished chemi and has had 2 operations allready with 1 more to go. Hopefully she has battled through it! It is the worst feeling finding out ive never ever felt so down, but you have to stay strong! I hope your wife gets through it as quick as possible. Is she having the treatment at wycombe hospital? If she is then they have been more that excellent to my mum, i have no complaints whatsoever about them! And they have a top top sergion.

5yrs ago my dad had a cancer tumour 3mm long, and had a third of one lung removed. he's totally clear. the chemo made him very unwell and through his choice he stopped taken it. it is a precaution they prescribe to prevent further development of cancerous cells. but it is your life, your choice.
he also had pollops on the bowel, which was diagnosed as cancerous, they were removed and he had a bag for some months, which was reversed.he's been clear now for getting on six yrs. a very lucky man.
but through out he carried on as normal,never let it get him down and stayed very positive through out.
it is not always a death sentence. stay positive always, i wish you and your wife all the very best.

Dave.

My thoughts are with you and your wife. If it hasn't been detected in the lymph nodes, then she has excellent chances of a full recovery. I hope it is speedy for both of you.
