But found out 1week ago that’s it’s back and spread to my liver and colon. So right now feel confused about future and new treatments . Some new drug not sure on name yet . Going for some test on Wednesday .

  • Hello Janiceathome

    I am very sorry to see that your cancer has returned after all your treatments in 2020.

    It is totally natural to feel confused about the future and to have questions about what will happen next with treatments. 

    I hope that your tests on Wednesday go well and that by having them you will be able to talk to your consultant and find out more about the treatments that may be available to you. 

    In the meantime if there is anything else you need, please do ask. If you feel talking to someone would help then please give the Support Line a call. They will understand. 

    Jane

  • Understandable to feel confused and wonder why it was not picked up sooner with having the tests. Maybe the tests you had were not in the area where the cancer came back or maybe it was too small to detect at first. I don't know but it something you could ask the consultant on Wednesday maybe? Or your CNS- I found mine brilliant for questions. 

    Am sorry that you are feeling so uncomfortable and nauseous and just because you have an appointment coming up it doesn't mean that you cant ask for some help before then. I was given some good anti nausea meds from my GP. If you are feeling really unwell, get checked before then
