I shed a tear or two when I read your initial post just now, in contrast to when I went for my own ‘Big C’ pow-wow with the Multi-Disciplinary Team evaluating my diagnostic results earlier this year, as I had already twigged I had cancer, or PCa as we connoisseurs here call it. I joked with the consultant ‘I am surprised you don’t have a big box of Kleenex on your desk!’. They helpfully recorded our conversation on a CD for me to take away - which I have never listened to.
I was totally chilled, as I had already checked out the morbidity (fatality) rates of different cancers, and it seems, in the words of one of my GPs, “PCa is one of the best cancers you can get”. Obviously, he has never had cancer......Others here who have lost loved ones might disagree, but most men die with it, not of it.
I was G4+3=7 like your man, and had a prostatectomy in June and am now cured.
Calm down Dear, it’s by no way the end of the world, unlike many other cancers. I hope you can get Hubby to come and join us here himself.
Everyone here will endeavour to help you however we can.
