    Story

    ONE MAN. ONE MISSION. ONE RECTUM.

    The exciting story of one man's adventures with Stage Two Rectal Cancer in the Scottish Highlands. Yeah sure, £10K may seem a lot but aim high and expect nothing.

    UPDATE: Operation will be a Lower Anterior Resection, with stoma (colostomy) bag on Conor's hop for 3-6 months. 90% of success and return to regular bowel function. Operation will take place mid-Oct/early Nov.

    Follow Conor O'Hara's Another Bloody Cancer Blog on YouTube for a background to his tale, going through diagnosis, radiotherapy & chemotherapy, singing songs about his tumour called TREVOR, and musing about life, cancer, the universe and finding replacement styluses for his record player.

    Thanks for your support. No really, thank you. This is kinda important.

      Greetings from Recovery Central. Just a wee update to let you know I had my operation on 7th Nov and thanks to the colorectal team at NHS Raigmore it was TOTAL SUCCESS, with no spread of cancer to surrounding areas. Best case outcome, I-and-I survive. Trevor R.I.P. I'm recuperating at home in Inverness, generally laying low and getting better every day, wearing my temporary stoma bag (weird weird weird!), and continuing with part-time counselling studies. Wishing you a peaceful Christmas/Yule season, and thanks again for your kind support. Cxx

The collective name for all my temporary stoma bags is Boris. Boris Johnson. Ought to give one a smile every day. It's the small things. And so, I can only thank every one who contributed to my littler corner. See you on the other side. Here's to the surgical team and all such teams around the world. Peace and love y'all. Cx

      Hey Conor, I think I'm just in time. Afraid it's not much, but hopefully buy you some spare needles for your records and a glass/mug/tankard of your favourite tipple. Put your feet up, mate!
