Living and coping

After receiving a diagnosis of bowel cancer it is normal that you may feel overwhelmed and stressed.

Lacking energy and fatigue are common side-effects of bowel cancer and its treatment.

After treatment for bowel cancer, follow-up care will be arranged to check that the cancer is not returning.

A person's bowel cancer diagnosis also has an impact on their family and friends.

Having a colostomy procedure and stoma can be a time when there are many questions to ask the doctors and stoma care team.

In many cases, treatment for bowel cancer will be successful, but the cancer can come back or recur.
