I have advanced bowel cancer. I notice online that there aren't as many posts although it's very common. I am only 42 and a mother of 4 who always ate well and excercised. I have a braf mutation which is aggressive and patches moved to my liver, intestine and one lymph gland. Only symptoms where when liver began to hurt as my bowel tumour was very narrow. Chemo has rid cancer on the gland but is proving resistant elsewhere so I'm now on Cetuximab still and tablet chemo. It would be good if there were more post out there so I added mine.

Dear KD, thank you for sharing your journey and I hope you are feeling well on your treatment.
