- I'm Carole, living in London, happily married and mum to two amazing boys.I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Rectal Cancer in April 2010. 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. Walk alongside me on the last part of my experience with this..

I was going to do an update tomorrow but seeing as how so many of you have now emailed me over the past few days and asked questions, I'll tell you what I know so far....
I eventually emailed the nurse on Wednesday and asked if she could let me know the results for both the bloods taken on the 13th and the CT scan done on the 20th.
I told her this was because my shoulder is driving me insane and if the scan is clear then I need to organise physio or whatever to try to relieve it (plus the overall joint pain and this ongoing naggy ache/pain under my ribs on the right hand side is increasing daily now).....
She then got back to me on Friday and said 'Bloods are fine but CT needs to go to MDT (big team meeting) on Monday morning and I can't report the result to you until after we've had the meeting'
So - bloods are fine and the scan I'll let you know about once I know - which should be sometime tomorrow afternoon.
Fingers crossed! :-)
