That’s rough mate. Worth getting all the options and all the potential consequences spelled out. Are you allowed to take anyone in with you when you meet the consultant? It’s useful to have a second pair of alert and calm ears in those situations. My mum was told that she had a 15% chance of dying from a heart condition, and was on the verge of declining the very major surgery to fix it when I pointed out that was annualised, and the laws of compound interest would mean she would be dead perhaps tomorrow and definitely within 3 years. The consultant said ‘yes, perhaps I should explain it like that in future’..... I work on oncology products all the time. One thing I know is that surgery is a really effective treatment. The idea of a colostomy bag isn’t a bundle of laughs, but I know a couple of people who have them, and I would never have known had they not told me. Try and have a chat with someone who needs one before making a definitive decision. Mind you, if they found nothing with the scan a thorough check up every six months and a decision if it returns would seem worth suggesting.
