My son Mathew had got up and gone for a shower. He said mum. I went to the loo this am and I have blood.. Okay no drama. Being a twin his brother has Crohns so was not over concerned we had been down this road could do it again… I said to Mathew. Do you feel okay he said yes … Okay go to work I will make you a appointment. For the doctor for this evening okay.. He said mum text me the details… 6.30 was his appointment… Mathew had his appointment. The following week he was going into Liverpool private to have a scope put up his bottom just to check as this is the only way to know for sure it is Crohns… His father and I where waiting outside for him… The doctor come out and calls us… We go into a private room … Mr and mrs gully we are sorry to tell you your son has bowel cancer… Excuse me no Crohns. Oh yes he has Crohns but also bowel cancer .. No that’s not right he is only 28 not married no children he works with the disable people goes to uni is getting credits how that possible… Well no time now Mathew moved back home we packet up his house and home he came… No uni for 12 months no job for 12 months.. Has been doing every thing the doctor told him… Yes we have had tears. But Mathew chemo went well they removed part of his bowel .. While having treatment Mathew lost 24 kg he looked so sick .. We had days that where great we had days that were not so good. We had days where why me it’s not fare… But now Mathew is back at uni. Moved back out of home has a new girl friend in his life… He was going off to the doctors for his final check up . He rang to say he has the all clear . He still needs a scope ever year. He still has treatment for Crohns .. But I said life is what we make of it and these things are sent to make us stronger.. So blood in your stool in not to be taken lightly even at a young age . Because not all is what it seems..
