    Btw I almost forgot o mention.... I am here if you want to vent. I am also sorry to hear that your moms pc was inoperable. There's hope. Don't ever lose hope. I'm not because we are going to fight this together!

      I am sorry to hear of your situation. I know it's hard on everyone. The emotions run high and everyone just wants to hear something to assure them, they're not alone. I'm happy that your husband is doing well and bless your mother. What a fighter they both are. God bless.

        Thank you for the uplifting message. I know I had a talk with his doctor earlier and he's willing to see me while my husband is doing his treatments. Soon he will start radiation and chemo pill so I hope that the progress will help him improve on his markers. Again as I mentioned before he's already gotten the Whipple procedure just doing aggressive chemo/radiation to prevent what the naked eye can't see. I wish th...

          I know it's exactly what he's doing. The less he hears about his cancer the better for him. I see that I want to help him so bad but the door is shut. He tells me that if I want him to stay positive, he doesn't want to know the progress of his treatments. He's coping with it the way he wants to and I respect that. I just want to know so that I can be the support and the knowledge. Every caregiver and cancer patient ...

            Funny you should say that to me. Back down? Control issue? I think you have gotten my plea for help wrong. You don't know how things are with my husband. You are not the one in my shoes to even pass judgement on me. I think you should be more open minded and considerate. I'm sorry if you are a caregiver or a survivor, but anyone going through this does not need the blame for anything. Thank you for your response. All...

              Yes, it's hard and I'm so sorry to hear that you are alone going through this. I always think its hard enough on the person who has the illness.... They should never face it alone. I always make it a tip priority to give him his needs before my own. My schedule works around his. I tend to him when he needs me. I try. I just wish he wasn't so stubborn and be more accepting and motivated to know and understand his canc...

                Thanks for the advice. I have tried to but the dr is almost always booked and runs two offices. It's hard enough too because I work full time and his dr office is clear across town. I'm going to try and make time to sit down with his dr and voice my questions. Thank you for reaching out to me.

                  Recently after diagnosis of pc my husband got the Whipple procedure and that was a success(46). He is now going through chemo and he's handling it pretty good. He gets really tired and sleeps it off in between meals. Here is where the problem is..... Every time we are getting ready to see the dr for follow ups and then chemo session I have questions. I'll ask him to maybe ask the dr what his cancer markers are or ho...

                    Amazing! I'm so happy to hear that you are blessed with surviving and being able to bear children. We tried to freeze his before chemo. Unfortunately, due to trauma and stress.... He was unable to produce any to freeze. I want children, but I'm not losing faith for his survival which is my first priority. God bless you and your family. Thank you for the uplifting thoughts.... And strength.
