  2. Lynne shares her story with us:

    Survivor Lynne shares her story with Pseudomyxoma SurvivorSurvivor Lynne shares her story with Pseudomyxoma SurvivorBefore I was diagnosed, I suffered from abdominal pain and tiredness.  I felt full quickly after only eating small amounts.  I saw various doctors who gave me a diagnosis between appendix, ovaries and bowel but no firm diagnosis.  Eventually, the colorectal doctor forwarded my CT scan on to the Basingstoke and North Hampshire hospital after I complained of pain in abdomen after jogging.

    I have had my appendix removed and my right ovary so tumour removed from there. I have had no further treatment so far and am currently on watch and wait.

    After receiving a cancer diagnosis, I was devastated at first as I am a single parent and the thought of not being there for my daughter was worse than thinking about what surgery lay ahead of me. I was angry also as just two weeks earlier had just found out I had passed my nursing degree.  Now though I have learned to take one day at a time and stop worrying about the future so much.  I just enjoy time now whilst I am fit and healthy.

    Survivor Lynne shares her story with Pseudomyxoma SurvivorMy advice to others would be don't read too much on the internet as each case is different and you will only scare yourself, enjoy life as we are only here once and talk about your feelings - don't let things build up.
