Hi. Just to give a brief idea as to what I have been through and do my first post.
I was diagnosed with lung cancer 2 years ago and had the top lobe of my right lung removed. The hospital left me for over 2 year's with cancer, untreated. I got pneumonia and my Thoracic Consultant asked me why I hadn't had treatment because he had seen an X-ray which the bowel Consultant's had which showed the tumour from over 2 year's previously and I said that I didn't know that I had a tumour.
In the last year I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis and my hands are clawed. 2 weeks ago I had a C.T. Scan on my stomach to check for cancer and that showed bad inflammation in my Colon and a couple of Polyps but no invasive procedures just now and I'm in agony with that. The Scan also showed that I have Osteoporosis in my spine and the 2 bottom vertebrae have crumbled and compacted and the pain gets worse as the day goes on, so front and back pain!
I have had no support at all from the hospital and no advice which they could do by phone! I know that Covid has changed a lot of procedures and the NHS are incredible but there are still people out here who are in desperate pain and need help. Thank goodness Versus Arthritis is here to help us .
I would like to know whether people with Osteoporosis have stomach problems as well?
