My husband has had late stage renal cancer going on 4 years now, been thru hell, i am amazed at what the human body can endure, the sad thing is he has had everything along with cancer, blood clots in lung legs ect, obstructed bowel, diabetes complications, PMR, and some other random health conditions, he has lost 120 lbs since this journey, been in the hospital at so many times the nurses all know us, stay for weeks at a time. He has been on several chemo therapy, surgery, radiation, inlyta seemed to really take his cancer down a knotch only thing it let it slip into his spine did radiation didn't touch it, so now going on votrient, also going for pain control where they put electric current into his spine to keep pain signals from going to brain. I have tried to be the cheery hopeful wife, keeping a good attitude but sometimes i just feel so alone, because of course this isn't the only thing that happens in our lives, and my husband has never been a cheery person, he also suffers from ptsd yea what a mix ptsd and cancer. so i will be looking forward to reading others comments on this site and maybe get a encouraging word here and there, oh i also quit smoking past december to celabrate our aniversary.
