my husband (age 32) was diagnosed in december with TC the second time around. the first time was exactly 5 years ago - december 2000. that time he had the orchiectomy, rplnd, then lung metasteses & chemo. this time he is on surveillance - the pathology report said no vascular/lymphatic invasion, docs thought we caught it early, etc. found out sunday that our second opinion pathologist does see signs of lymphatic invasion. i'm scared. he doesn't want anyone to know what is going on, which is really hard. this has all been so hard on him, obviously, but it is challenging to be strong for him when i don't have anyone to lean on myself. i feel like sometimes i just need to cry, but i can't do it around him, and i can't do it around our almost 2-yr-old daughter, none of my friends know, so that means i just end up keeping it all inside. just needed to share this with someone. thanks.
