Hi I am devastated and do not know what to do ...

Colonoscopy on 17th April was told that I have a malignant tumour on my bowel and a  CAT scan done before shows nodules on lungs .

Waiting for MDT meeting that will happen on 29th April and then I will be called to hospital for next stage .

Just in shock ...

Hi and welcome to the community. Many of us will be familiar with the initial shock of a cancer diagnosis. The early days of uncertainty can be the worst. Easy for me to say now, but once a treatment plan is put in place and you know where you are going, things tend to be a little less stressful. Could I point you to the Bowel (colon and rectum) group . There you will find others with experience of this and will be able to help and advise you. Click the link to get to the group. You can then start a new discussion in the group with your concerns. I hope all goes well. Best wishes.

Best wishes to All,   rily.  What is a Community Champion ?
