Newly Diagnosed -- Support for spouses

I was diagnosed on Wednesday, May 8, with papillary thyroid cancer. Surgery is not scheduled until the end of the month. I need my husband to let me be supportive of him just as he is supportive of me as we go through this ordeal. He doesn't want to talk. Any suggestions? I really need him to open up to me so that I can move on. CAthy

My name is Geri. I have had thyroid cancer twice now within a 10yr period. The best thing you can do is to physically be present for appointments. Eventually he will come around and your presence will not go unnoticed.

Cathy,

Why won't he talk? For what it's worth...I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 1983 and 1988...and here I am talking to you. Eveyone's story is different...and everyone's story is the same.
