My husband met with his oncologist yesterday who gave him the good news that his brain tumor had shrunk due to radiation treatment.
We were so happy for a few minutes and then POW!!! he suggested very strongly that we need the Palliative Care Team to be involved NOW.My heart just sank from being on such a high and then swoop down to the lowest low and then stabilise.
He has a scan next week to see if his lung cancer has spread,if not then his medical team will decide if a combination of radiation and chemo will help him be more comfortable.At the moment he is struggling.
I have personally called this the 'Triple K' approach.
K = Kiss (give some good news)
K = Kick (give the bad news)
K = Kiss (give something to soften the bad news)
Just wanted to share my day.
Gentle whispers of encouragement coming to all you brave people.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
