Hi Plymgirl,

Sorry to hear about your diagnosis there. I'm a womb cancer lady myself. Hospital scans vary from hospital to hospital, but as far as I can tell it is between 1-4 weeks. You probably have a consultant, so you can phone their secretary and she/he will tell you when the results will likely be in. 

You can join the forum on here for bowel cancer, and the People on there are the pals you want to have. They will support you every step of the way. I love the people on my forum, they are so great! Click on group and then B for bowel cancer. A community champion will come on here and explain it better than me.

Waiting anxiety is one thing ALL of on here have and are still having experience of. You have my sympathies there! I am on chemo just now. I am getting on fine with it.

Good luck!

Lots of love
