It’s the same for everybody waiting for a life-saving cancer operation: this coronavirus is taking over. They diagnosed me with oesophageal cancer in January and were going to give me four treatments, then surgery to remove the cancer from my gullet, then four more sessions to clear any cancer they’d missed. Luckily, the chemotherapy worked and the cancer had gone from my lymph nodes, so the surgeon said I would have two more sessions, then he would schedule an operation to completely remove it, because three months after chemo it can come back.
