Thanks again for the tips, I do relay everything to him and I know it helps some.


My husband refuses to take the internet route - so I do it for him, and relay information, usually from scientific articles, or stories from this forum, and he is appreciative. I try to spread them or wait until something is really appropriate (for example, an article praising SBRT at the time we realized that radiation at our local hospital did not do the job), so that his cancer isn't a daily topic of conversation and we can go days, even weeks now, without mentioning it, which is wonderful! I hope you get there - like many have said, it IS possible to recover from the nastiness of treatments and side effects.

Thanks Claudine, I hope we get to the point of not having to visit this every single day, but right now I feel like until his bowels get on track it is going to be a constant reminder even when chemo is done. I keep just encouraging him every day that he can get through the chemo. I just hope he can know that he can do it. Lots of prayer!
