We start our third week of treatment tomorrow and on thursday he will be getting his second round of Cisplatin. Did fairly well with the first but am wondering will the second round be more difficult. Does the chemo have a cumulative effect? Also, doing ok with radiation. He is only having the right side of the neck radiated so side effects bad but not severe. His neck is very stiff, red and warm to touch. I am lubricating it with lotion. Just have anxiety because it seems like after the second week it gets tougher from what I have read, but I know everyone is different.
Just wish this was all over. So hard to see someone you love go through this. Ever since we found out about this anxiety seems to be the norm. First you have to accept that the one you love has cancer, then go through the anxiety and pain of treatment, then when that is finished worry about each scan that they will have in the future. I don't think I will ever have a truly worry free or carefree moment again. Life sure can change quickly. But, it also makes me try to cherish every moment with my husband and never take anything for granted again. Sorry, just venting and helps to relieve stress and anxiety. I know people that are going through this or have been through this understand this all to well.
Thanks to all of you and pray for health for you all.
