"communication? communication?? communicatiobn???"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Back in December I had a colonoscopy which revealed a malignant colonic tumour. Had CT scans before Xmas. After Xmas a meeting was held and the good news, the results were negative. That was the last I heard until the end of Jan when I was given a date (for which I understood) was for the removal of the tumour. Wrong!! The doctor couldn`t remove the tumour safely. More biopsy`s taken, another team meeting??? this time it will mean surgery? A lot of questions have been left unanswered. Lets see what happens this time!!!
