My husband was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer last month. He is 40 years old. He is having a very difficult time dealing with everything that is going on. He is angry (which I understand). What concerns me is that he becomes defiant and acts out in ways that, I fear, may come in the way of his treatment and recovery. Among other things, he got angry and walked out of his first chemo treatment. I'm not sure how to deal with what he is feeling. He's been selected to be in a clinical trial with Erbitux, however, he has developed the 'rash', and now is demanding to be taken out of the trial.
