As health deteriorates, Deborah James of the BBC advises spending quality time with loved ones.
DEBORAH JAMES has revealed that her health is deteriorating, explaining why she returned to her podcast earlier than expected this week.
Deborah James was diagnosed with stage three bowel cancer in December 2016 at the age of 35.
After spreading to other parts of her body, it has progressed to stage four.
Her cancer has currently been discovered wrapped around her bile ducts just outside of her liver, which is the most dangerous location.
Deborah told her co-stars Lauren and Steve in a new episode of her podcast You, Me, and the Big C: Putting the Can in Cancer that she didn’t think she’d be alive by March and that she wanted to record new episodes sooner.
She began by stating that she was still recovering from colitis from three months ago and was having difficulty eating.
Deborah explained, “If I eat the wrong thing, it triggers a colitis attack.”
She told listeners that she had been bedridden for three weeks and that her cancer chemotherapy had been put on hold during this time.
Amanda Holden, 50, appears to remove her bra in an eye-catching display.
“During my absence due to colitis, my liver stent began to fail.
“I thought I was ready to resume chemo, but a few weeks ago, I learned that my liver had begun to fail,” she explained. “We could see signs that my liver stent was failing.”
Doctors thought the stent was blocked and operated quickly to repair it, but when she awoke, she says “everything changed.”
Deborah was then informed that the stent had to be removed due to the presence of too much cancer in the area.
“I thought I was being sent home to die,” she said after being told there wasn’t much they could do at the time.
It was extremely frightening.”
Deborah discovered cancer on various organs in her body, including her pancreas, during a recent scan, which caught her off guard.
“The surgeon basically shook my hand and told me to go spend Christmas with my family,” she continued.
“I’m sorry, there’s nothing I can do for you,” he said.
