Just to update you on my progress. The operation was a success and the tumour was completely removed from my bowel. My recovery is going very well and I am able to do and walk a little more each day.
After the op they tested lymph nodes in the surrounding area and detected a little cancer in 5 out of 28 nodes tested. This means I will require a 6 month course of chemotherapy starting next week after a consultation with an oncologist. The chemo will be in tablet form so not as strong as if hooked up to a machine. There are side effects that could make me quite ill although I might be lucky and it won't but that is nothing in the overall scheme of things. If it gets rid of the cancer that is left that is all that matters.
What it also means is that it will put me in the vulnerable category for coronavirus so I will be stuck indoors for at least 12 weeks. At least it will allow me to catch up with the junior stuff.
My outlook is that a big chunk of cancer has gone leaving just a little that the chemo will clear up.
