I was confident I did not have bowel cancer until I did the national bowel cancer early screening program last August.
I had no symptoms.
I was referred to a specialist after the results came with microscopic blood in my stool. Within a week I underwent a colonoscopy that confirmed I have cancer in my colon approximately 15cm from my rectum. Within two weeks I went under the knife and had the cancer removed.
I am currently undergoing chemotherapy.
My life has changed since the diagnosis. While I have prepared myself as much as I can, there is still that anxiety or fear that the cancer may come back. My physical and mental nature has changed too in some shape or form.
I have pretty much concluded that my life will not be back to normal like it was before my diagnosis.
