Surgery took place in November 2010 and I now have a permanent colostomy...Spinal mets were then diagnosed in October 2011...In January 2012 I was told of further spread to the hip area (multiple lesions)..My life expectancy is now 6-9 months.

New Appointment .....:-(

I've received an email today asking me to go to meet with the surgeon tomorrow afternoon.

This will be for the results of my recent PET scan and to discuss the surgery.

Suddenly I can't breath.....

I thought I was gaining some control of all this and getting myself ready for what I have to do - but now I'm sitting here thinking how am I going to get through this.

Update tomorrow, nothing much else to say at the moment :-(


  1. You can and you will find a way to get through it.
    I'm rooting for you, Carole. Thoughts and prayers with you tomorrow.

  2. I will keep my fingers cross for you tomorrow....xx

  3. Take a big deep breath, this is it, when you finally know what is ahead of you. You can, will and you must get through this...

    Carole, I am taken right back to the time on Jan 4th when I got my final details of surgery...hugely frightening, nothing else matters, so take back the control as it is YOUR choice, YOUR life whether you go tomorrow or you don't. So get up tomorrow get that lippy on and show the world and this sh@~ cancer that you mean business...the fight is here...bring it on!!!

    I can almost hear that Rocky theme tune in the background :-)

    Much Love

    Tony xx

  4. We are all with you.Good luck sweetheart.
