Hello my mum was diagnosed with a rare cancer (bowel cancer and part of vaginal wall) she now has a stoma but has currently got a hernia where she is struggling to walk and painful. Just want to know if anyone knows of this type of cancer or if anyone has had something similar maybe any outcomes also with the ongoing hernia problem. Or if I can be pointed to the right forum thank you in advance.
Hello birdz and welcome to the community, although sorry to hear your mum is having some discomfort. Could I suggest you post your concerns in the Bowel (colon and rectum) group. There you should find someone with experience of this and may be able to help. Best wishes.
Thank you so much X
