After being diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer. I am now waiting to start chemo. No dates for starting yet. But I am going on holiday in 3 weeks for my daughter’s wedding. If I get a start date before then should I delay the treatment until I get back 

  • HI

    can you not phone you designated nurse, and see what she advises, tell her your going to your daughters wedding, when i was on chemo, i had one, and instead of three weeks later they delayed it for another week, because i was away, xxx

  • I was going on holiday with my husband, daughter and grandsons three weeks after I was told that I was incurable. My consultant delayed my treatment until I returned from holiday. 

  • Hi Mark, Welcome, The advice you have had from Ellie is exactly what I would have advised. I think it is better you speak to them just now before the dates are set. Then they should be easier to alter them to suit you! Good luck and enjoy your daughters wedding!
