On this day 9th June 2016 I was lying in a high dependancy ward in a hospital 50 miles from home after having major surgery to remove cancer from my liver.
Today the 9th of June 2017 I have just accepted an offer of sale on my little flat and looking to move on an create a family home with Mr Sparkles.
I have been feeling really low this past few weeks as it my one year “cancer-versarry”. It has brought back all the old feelings of worry and fear that I was experiencing this time last year. It hasn’t helped that I had my annual check up with my Liver Specialist and was basically told that I am still a medical anomoly and as such they couldn’t really tell me what the future holds!
Most of you probably will not know that today is World Cancer Day. Unfortunately for me cancer invaded my life last year and I am very much aware of today’s significance.
Taking place under the hashtag #WeCanICan the aim of world cancer day is to promote awareness of cancer and looking at what you as an individual can do to reduce the impact of a cancer diagnosis.
Hospital appointments are never pleasant. Lets face it no one likes sitting being poked and prodded and having endless amounts of tests carried out and the worry of waiting for results.
In the majority of people having a scan at the hospital is a one off procedure … a precaution to make sure things are ok however for anyone who has ever had cancer a scan is a completely difference experience….
