      Hi all, just update not posted a while been feeling rubbish HB blood low had blood transfusions . then started with pain in stomach scans did not show anything but was anemic. Plan was to see GI consultant to check my small bowel. Well did not get there took myself in hospital could not cope with pain. Turned out a nodual tumour blocking my bowels. Started throwing up , 5 litres in one night was transfered to another hospital for emergency op. So had it removed home now bloods seem to now be stable don’t feel like its going down again. Got a cut from belly button down so home recovering. Cannot lift , bend as yet too sore but glad its over with. Appointment 16 th august to see consultant. Hope you all as well has can be.

              Hi Mike , its been quite a jouney for me since having melanoma. Was left a year from my GP despite going 7 times with a mole. If it was delt with might be a different story for me now. Always get checked out does not matter if turns out nothing. I have leart the hard way never wanted to bother docs but not now. Will always have anything checked if worried. Hope treatment going well for you. Keep well my friend.
