Hi, I’m new to this group, now 2 years post small bowel resection for neuroendocrine tumour with lymph node involvement.
i have monthly self administered lanreotide injections to control the multiple seedlings in liver and mesentery. Generally well, although did go into complete bowel obstruction whilst on holiday 6 months ago.
I’m interested to hear others experiences of living with NETS.
