My future treatment

RADIO + CHEMO
I have had radiotherapy with adjuvant chemotherapy.

SURGERY
I then had surgery to remove the part of my bowel where the tumour was sited, plus the two lymph nodes attached. I lost the tumour, and gained an ileostomy, which means I have a bag on my belly for my waste matter.

CHEMO
After a month’s rest and recovery, I began six months of chemotherapy, which finished in September 2017.

REVERSAL
I am now waiting for the final surgery to reverse the ileostomy. This won’t happen anytime soon, thanks to the austerity programme of George Osborne, Boris Johnson, Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt.
