Moving all the genetic counselling and testing talk to its own thread so I/we don't hijack the ianunderhill vs. cancer thread.
I've got a genetic counselling appointment in a few days as there is a chance that I have a genetic mutation that makes colon cancer a lot more likely (and a lot more deadly).
Has anyone else had this type of counselling? What should I expect? And if anyone else has been tested for genetic mutations (I feel like a knock-off version of an X-Man every time I say that) - how long did it take for the results to come back? What did you do to not go a bit stir crazy while you waited?
