I was more worried about the chemo than I was the surgery. You're right, once you've got one session behind you it's different and you can start to focus on getting through it instead of wondering what it will be like.[/quote]
Well, I hadn't any time to worry about the surgery – I was wheeled from the emergency department (where I walked in with stomach cramps) straight up to theatre for a colectomy…
But having the eight weeks after that to think about chemo was a disaster for my brain.
I should also say that I found Headspace (a mindfulness app) to be a great tool.
