Results Meeting – NOC Outpatients – Oxford

D-WHITWELL-01-320x220

Meeting with Mr Duncan Whitwell, Consultant Orthopaedic & Tumour Surgeon and a McMillan Nurse, confirmed from biopsy I have a Chordoma, it has not spread anywhere else as confirmed from the PET scan….phew! Still a shock to find out you have a malignant cancer tumour though at 40 years of age 😦

Was advised things will now start moving, a temporary laparoscopic colostomy will need to be preformed as the tumour is pushing against the bowel (see MRI image in earlier post) and could cause problems with removal of the chordoma, better to do this now as complications during main surgery would not be good. Next meeting will be about colostomy….
