Cancer ,Well how does it look

So he had prostate cancer

Treated by radiotherapy

Monitored by 6 monthly tests

Ok so far

And melanoma, which wasn’t promising given the depth, but he’s still here, lymph nodes removed, countless metastasis surgically removed from his arm ,a huge arm due to lymphodemia

But he wouldn’t let him be defined by that

Used it, shook hands
Until

It began to reverse

Which can’t happen according to research

Agreed to tests for research which found his body had found different pathways

To reverse lymphademia

But now has colon cancer

Best of three?

We are both shattered by the news

But I guess we just have to battle this as well

Start a new 5 year battle

Knowing other battles may make it unimportant

Your both fighters. It must be devastating news but you can get through this. Do they know what stage the colon cancer is? What is the prognosis?

Two family members have had colon cancer removed and their lives are back to 'normal' again. Yes very uncomfortable for many months but always light at the end of the tunnel.

Fingers crossed that Albert's can similarly be treated.

Waiting for a return call from the specialist nurse

The MDT was on Friday when they discussed the options from the scan results

Unfortunately as it’s a new cancer the treatment in the first instance is local, then Christie’s will continue
to monitor it

Going for third time lucky at the moment Barry

Considering how long waiting lists for ops can be that is quite a result Sandra.
