Sorry to bother you all. Am really worried I may have bowel cancer. I've had high grade DCIS in 2001, and Paget's disease of the breast in 2010. Had left mx in 2010. No further treatment needed.
I've had loose stools since Sunday, and even needed to change my bedding on Tuesday night - felt really ashamed about that. Spoke to MacMillan person on phone tonight, but it was just before they closed. They were lovely, but no time to say much, and they suggested I phone NHS Direct, but they're only taking urgent calls, which mine isnt, as I have no pain or any other symptoms.
It's the cancer thing raising its head again - feel dirty and embarrassed about loose stools, and just crying, crying with shame and worry just now.
My Dad's had bowel cancer twice and also has had non-hodgkin's lymphoma, all in last 4 yrs. I've had an awful day at work and put my notice in, and now face two days off which is good, but getting to end of tether with toilet problem. Wouldn't be as brave as my Dad if I have bowel cancer.
Please help me with that cancer demon again - how do I stop presuming I've got cancer?
I think there's a forum on the MacMillan site, but I am going out of my head just now, and want to write in this forum cos I know how to post, and that hopefully I will get replies.
