I was recently diagnosed with colon cancer and have a surger

I was recently diagnosed with colon cancer and have a surgery scheduled to remove it along with my appendix and 9 inches of the surrounding colon and lymph nodes. I’m scared, have no friends to talk to for support and I can barely hang on.

Hugs! I am so sorry you are going through this alone. If you are going to a hospital with a religious affiliation, ask for a spiritual counselor. I have heard positive from people who have reached out for this service.

@Artchic528 that is scary! You are being brave to put one foot in front of the other. Breathe , pray, think good thoughts. You will heal and be healthier after it’s over. Pray for angels of mercy and healing to be by your side.
Come here too.

Hang in there. Make sure to talk to ur surgeon about everything. Do you know if u are getting an iliostomy or colostomy bag?
