Hi I am so sorry to hear what your husband and yourself are going thru. When I got diagnosed with cancer in my small intestine it all happen the same way as your husband so fast one day being told the news and In 7 days being operated on. I wonder if having no time to think about things is better. Life can be cruel one minute life is just going normally and next everything is tipped upside down and hard. I think the best way is try to live is day by day and not let your brain run away from you by thinking to far ahead. Which is not easy to do. I wish I had something to say to make it better but I don’t. Look after yourself in such a hard time.

Hi LaurenM, I am so sorry you can't visit your husband. That's really tough on both of you. I live in South Australia so am not sure of legal requirements in Victoria. I would advice calling a free legal service or getting onto the Australian Government website for basic advice/checklist of things to think about. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the treatment and care too as I had experience of effects of chemo, radio and surgery on my dear husband. Having said that, each journey is different. I hope your hubby can get home soon. Take care
