Hi all I was reeling from Bowel cancer diagnosis I thought it was dairy or gluten intolerance .After 2nd colonoscopy to take biopsies I had emergency surgery for perforated bowel and woke up with an ileostomy . Beginning to get my head round it before they hit me with all the chemo information !!!

  • Oh  

    We are here to support you . It’s a lot to process especially when you are just getting over surgery .

    However one step at a time and we do have a useful thread when you feel up to it that gives pointers on going through chemo .

    Until then we are here to help to through each stage until this is firmly in your rear view mirror .

  • Hi  and a warm welcome to the board from me. I hope you’re recovering well from the op and your Ileostomy is settling down - there’s lots of information on the stoma board if you need it?

     Ileostomy, colostomy and stoma support 

    As Court says we can help and support you once you have your chemo details through but focus on getting your strength back for now

    Take care
