In late December of 2018 my husband was diagnosed with sinus cancer. We were devastated. This was not the first time my husband had cancer, he also had it 8 years ago, (prostate cancer) they removed it, he did 13 weeks of radiation and he was cancer free. With the sinus cancer, it was a whole different ball game, because it's now in your head. After 7 weeks of radiation, the tumor is gone! However, there is a small area inside his nose, the doctor feels it is scarring from the radiation, and will go away on it's own. The doctor has booked an MRI for August 12, just to be sure it is scarring. In the meantime, since the radiation has stopped, my husband is a different person, he is mean, angry, impatient and really just impossible to be around! He has alienated our children who were so very supportive and helpful and loving while he is going through this. Now me, I am just his slave...I wait on him hand and foot. We have been married for 35 years and I adore my husband and have always taken care of him. He is so mean to me and says terrible things to me...I think it's getting close to the kids and I leaving! Actually, let me rephrase that.... We are leaving, because I can no longer take the abuse...my health isst risk!!!!!
