Thanks Rebecca sometimes though this you feel like you are doing this alone especially in lockdown. It’s nice to be reminded of the support you have around you. My husband has just came home today but is still toxic so still can’t touch him and they have had to change up chemo treatment and is now on hold until they get chemical infection under control. They will not use port again as if continues to leak he will need more operations to cut out affected area. This journey has just begun and already feel so overwhelmed. I hope once the shock settles I will cope better. It’s just so hard to watch him go through this.

My husband has recently been diagnosed with stage 3 bowel cancer. He is only 43 and to say it has been a difficult start to treatment is an understatement. He has had an ileostomy which took longer to recover then estimated. He finally started chemo a week later then anticipated but then the port leaked into his chest and now is back in hospital with chemical cellulitis. We are trying to stay positive but we are really scared about what’s next. And with recent Covid restrictions I can’t see him. He has been toxic from the leak for two weeks and I just want to hug him. This is my first time posting . Thanks for listening Al
