Hi Fairy2020 and a very warm welcome to the online community
I'm very sorry to hear that you've recently been diagnosed with bowel cancer and that you're still waiting for surgery as more tests are needed.
Could I suggest that you join and post in the bowel cancer group where you can share experiences and get support from others with this type of cancer.
To join just click on the link I've created and then choose 'join this group' on the page that opens. You can then introduce yourself and post questions after selecting 'start a discussion' and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.
When you have a minute it would be useful if could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
