This is my first post. My husband is 6 weeks post surgery and I now feel more emotionally empty than ever. I wondered if others felt the same. The initial shock has passed, the resolve and ‘fighting spirit’ that was needed in the first few weeks is fading. The reality and worry are perhaps only just arriving now. I also feel hopelessly uninformed, with no idea about how optimistic, or otherwise I should be. Maybe there just isn’t more to know at the moment.
Also, if there is anyone else that has been in a similar situation to my other half I would be grateful to hear from you as I am trying to get my head around his treatment plan, and the pros and cons of each stage and decision.
Since he is the kind of person, like many others, that finds any contact with hospital overwhelmingly anxiety inducing, he chooses to know as little as possible, and I take the role of information gatherer. This has been difficult for us as I’ve not been able to attend hospital meetings due to Covid precautions.
He has been on HT since diagnosis, then had RP, with plans for adjuvant RT, we don’t know when this might take place, I believe that they want him to recover first from the surgery. I’ve not found much information about other people that have had HT right away followed by the other treatments.
I’m very grateful for any replies
