Reality TV star remains positive about cancer fight


Jade Goody is thankful she won’t need a colostomy bag following her bowel operation.

The reality TV star underwent life-saving surgery on Friday after doctors found a tumour the size of a golf ball.

‘The operation lasted nearly two hours and thankfully it was a success,’ she writes in her new! diary.

‘I had tubes going up my nose and into my neck pumping in pain relief to my body.

‘I’m just relieved that I won’t need a colostomy bag. It’s one thing losing my hair, but I think a poo bag would have been too much.’

Jade, 27, was diagnosed with cervical cancer last summer.

She is due to start a two-month course of Hycamtin, a drug normally used in the advanced stages of the disease.
