First scare was backache and ended up being a deformed lumbar thingy.
Second was a cyst on my cervix. Turned out OK.This last scare was for bowel cancer. Geez I thought. I had blood tests monthly for 3 months all showing an elevated CEA figure (highest being 3.7). After checking on the internet that smokers could go up to 5 and I do smoke I thought "not a problem". Doc insisted that further checks be done. So I have just spent yesterday at the local hospital so a specialist could have a looky in the "you know whaty". I can only describe the last 2 days of prep as ....... baby wipes.
Anyway results are clear. I am free from the body invasion. What a great relief for the family and I.
