Just wondering how some of you that have been through your treatment got through your "dark days" after tx to your scan? As a caregiver, I'm finding it a hard to help get him through these dark days. And when I say dark, I literally mean the dark in the sense that he is becoming scared of the dark. Does not like to look outside at the dark without getting emotional. He even sleeps with a night light. The emotions are running high for him. We're only a little over a week out of treatment, so the pain and healing physically is still going on. The doctors told him yesterday that they want him to get swallowing...this is also hard on him. He barely gets some ginger ale (without fizz) down without pain. He can't stand to look at himself in the mirror and is emotional over his looks...and looking aged.
I know this is just part of the process and we'll get through it a day at a time. Just wondering how some of you got through those days.
As always, thanks for your advice and support.
