I have decided to share this with you today to put it in the open so people can be informed correctly and hopefully for those in my age group, get a check up!
On the 23rd of Feb this year I heard the dreaded words from my Doctor, "you have cancer".
Without all the boring bits, a ton of tests and scans later and I know it's bowel cancer and also cancer in my left kidney.
On Monday the 13th I will undergo surgery to have it all cut out. That means a couple of weeks in hospital and a substantial recovery period.
The good news is the surgeon believes in 12 months I should be living a normal life again and 100% cancer free.
Btw I'm 49 with a crappy family history for this so the warning signs were there, but I ignored them until I was in serious pain...
If you are around that range, GET A CHECK UP!
P.S. If anyone hits my nation while I'm gone I invite the whole world to burn them to the ground!
