I am going through this with my hubby right now, he's one year out from treatment. Can you give me an update on how your husband is now? I'm currently lost as to how to help my husband. He had base of tongue stage 4 due to lymph nodes involved. Thank you!

18 months from treatment and the anger has started.My husband  is in complete remission from brain cancer - PCNS lymphoma. His haematologist likens it to an aquired brain injury. Radiation in to the brain has left him with sensory overload and an inability to apply filters to determine if it is culturally appropriate to sob or was the conversation by me out to get him. He is aware of his problems and tries to do physical activity when he feels agitation coming on.

He is on antipsychotic  medication at the moment which has only just started to work. After a good month I feel he is now entering depression - slept most of the day for the last two days. I am walking on eggshells as the moment but it helps that both of us understand the problem. His haematologist said he has never met anyone post cancer treatment who really understands what is happening to him and who tries to predict when he is agitated and removes himself.
