    Hi @clo1992 and a warm welcome from me :)

    I'm sorry to hear about your resident's diagnosis and also your poor health.  You don't sound dramatic at all, just understandably concerned.  Any changes to bowel/urinary habits are best off being investigated by GP's, just to be on the safe side, so please do get in touch with them if you haven't already.  I know getting through to doctor surgery's can be a bit of a hassle due to long waiting times, but persist in getting through and let us know how you get on.

    Sending you lots of get well wishes.
