First timer here. Looking for a support/chat page. I battled bowel cancer 2014 only for it to return in my liver at first we thought if it could be shrunk and an operation might be on the agenda but further scans showed it had spread into my spine so I became palliative from then. I go for chemo every fortnight and have been on this first line chemo combo for coming up-to two and half years nearly. Just wondering if there are any groups to go to or chat rooms as sometimes it gets me down. I have such a supportive family but sometimes I feel like I just moan and although they are sympathetic they can’t really understand me if that makes sense. Thanks for any suggestions as feeling bit isolated sometimes. Regards
