As all seemed clear, I was very shocked when my surgeon told me that the polyp was cancerous and the cancer was also found in 2 of the 12 lymph nodes removed during the operation. I think that my disbelief was compounded because my husband had a prostatectomy in November, again following cancer being diagnosed after routine screening. It just didn't seem possible that both of us had been diagnosed with cancer within a couple of months of each other.
I am usually a very positive person, always on the move , someone who generally sees the up-side of a situation but this threatens to change that. I am struggling to find much that is positive at the moment.

We have a little farm and doing some of the animal stuff helps to keep some normality but the thought of feeling like this fir 6 months fills me with dread.
There are positives. I have a lovely husband and the animals are very comforting to be around.
Did others of you feel as I do and did it get better?
Hey, its stopped raining ...another positive?!!
