Happy Belated Birthday Sammy.

Thank you very much and as luck would have it I got a BelatED BIRTHDAY PRESENT. My big brother (I am actually taller than him but he will always be my big brother) was diagnosed about 6 months ago with bowel cancer. He's been in for an operation and came through a horrendous recovery but lo and behold did he not get the all clear today. Absolutely wonderful news and a great unbirthday present :D

Samsc, fantastic news and I'm sure a huge gift for all your family. I'm delighted for you.:)

Thank you Pat. Just by sheer chance he took part in the bowel screening programme; I dread to think what would have happened had he not.

The screening programmes are so important, samsc.

I've always gone for my breast screening programmes and this led to an operation five years ago. The area being operated on was so small that i spent a long time with three radiographers prior to the op as they inserted small pins in the area indicating where the surgeon was to operate. Otherwise he would not have been able to see it.

Afterwards I had five weeks radiotherapy as a precaution.

One of my friends died of breast cancer. I remember her dropping me off for my screening whilst telling me that she wasn't going back as it was too painful. It is a bit uncomfortable but only takes minutes and saves lifes.

Hope you have great times with your brother.
