Matt, my heart breaks for you.
My husband was diagnosed with germ cell testicular cancer at Easter this year. We have had 4 cycles of 21 day chemo straight away, surgery to remove a tumour from behind his knee and surgery to remove 3 small tumours from his brain, these surgeries went well and were preparing for surgery on his lungs when the scans showed the cancer had flared up again. So now we are 2 cycles down into high dose chemo, again. The Drs and nurses are wonderful and keep us informed every step of the way. Our 2 teenage sons have been amazing throughout this whole crappy life we currently live.
I can can cope with all the medical stuff and the Drs are still telling us that they hope to completely stop the cancer then cut it out. But my big issue is all the emotional changes to our family, I miss my husband, I want to old hubby back, I am sure he will get back to normal one day, but for our normal is so far removed from normal that I wonder how we, I get up each day and continue.
please if you need to chat don't hesitate
