When I was having chemo last year, there were a lot of people who had chemo to keep the cancer at bay. A lot of these people had been doing this for years, hopefully something like this will help your husband x
I am sorry Kim. have you heard of Caring Bridge? It is a web site that you can use to keep friends and family updated on your husband's progress. It is a way to get messages to all without getting overwhelmed, and a one stop place for people to support you. A friend of mine is in treatment for melanoma and says this site has helped a lot. She uses it to update us and make requests when she needs help.
Kim, please email me at email@example.com My husband too has lung cancer, and it sounds like the kind of cancer that your husband has. I'd love to correspond directly with you if you'd like to email me. My prayers are with you both!
Hi there. My e-mail is ok to receive mail but not to send it. I tried to send you an e-mail but it might not work. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you send me one I will try to answer on this web site. Kim Robinson
Well, today Wayne had his first chemo treatment. We were there for 6 hours. So far no side effects, but we will pray that it stays that way. Thanks again to everyone for being here for us!! It means so much!! Kim Robinson
So far no side effects from chemo. The only thing is he is really tired so I guess that would be a side effect. But we will be ok. I just hope that he doesn't get sick. I really need to go back to work, but I wish I could just stay home with him. Thanks again for all the concern and prayers from all of you!!! It means so much!! Kim and Wayne Robinson
Still no major side effects from chemo. The one thing that is going on is that he is getting more and more depressed. I just hate to see this. I don't know what to do. Hopefully this will get better in the future. Thanks for listening and praying . Kim
My mother is a two time cancer survivor. 5 years ago she had breast cancer, and made it. Then tragedy struck again about 7 months ago. She was diagnosed with non-hodgkins limphomia. She did the the chemo thing, and the radiation thing as well.
One thing about chemo...is that it effects everybody differently. My mom didnt get depressed, at all, she stayed positive through the whole thing. We didnt think she was going to lose her hair, but by the 2nd treatment her hair was comming out in clumps, so my dad decided to shave it all off for her. It was really hard seeing her like that. She finished her treatments in november, and her hair is growing back like a weed. She goes for her next body scan I beleive in may, if it comes back clear she will be good to go. The mind is a powerful thing, be strong and supportive for him....my thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband.....
