There is nothing more reassuring than speaking to someone who has “been through it before” and it can be a great comfort knowing you are not alone at this potentially stressful time.

Have you had to arrange care before? Can you offer any advice or share your knowledge with those who need it?

If you need help or simply wish to tell your story, please don’t hesitate to post below. Remember, people want to listen and are keen to help if they can.

    I can understand your Dad feeling like this. The worst thing anyone can do is "Google" procedures, it can be very frightening. I hope your dad does change his mind and goes to the hospital for the colonoscopy.
