My husband woke up with stomach pain. A week and a half later, he had surgery for colon cancer. 2 days after the surgery, his mind went around the bend. The doctors said his calcium level was 18 and should be between 7 & 9. He hasn't known anyone, including me (I've known him for 19 years and married for 17), for almost 2 weeks. 4 days later they told me he also had neuroendocrin carcenoma in his liver and bones. They say he only has months or less to live. I need to find someone else who has had experience with these two kinds of cancers at the same time. He can't walk anymore so they want him to go to rehab for 2 weeks until he starts chemo. Knowing my husband, he would rather be as strong as possible for as long as possible instead of being sick from the chemo. Any advice or experience with any of this is greatly appreciated. He is only 60 years old. I feel all alone since his family is 1000 miles away.
Any help is all I can ask.
