Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

Am so sad to hear of BeansMama passing. She was one of those rare people who could make postings on a forum convey the true warmth of her personality. I will miss her but take inspiration from such a strong person as I enter a new phase of my own fight.

Hello everybody, I had a seizure yesterday and ended up in A+E. Had a CT scan of my head this morning which showed a two centimetres growth on left side of brain. Doc said this could be spread from bowel, or a new primary which might not be malignant. Will be having more tests. All observations welc...

Re: How long after colon resection did you feel back to normal?
