My very fit, active husband age 54 was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in October 2020. He had no symptoms at all and suddenly developed lower back, hip and thigh pain. It's hard to comprehend he was doing 80 mile cycles just a back in the summer.
When we went to the uroligist appointment in October we never thought in a million years this would be the outcome.
The impact on my husband, myself and 2 sons has turned our worlds upside down. He is on abiraterone treatment and degralix alongside slow release morphine and that has helped a lot to get his pain under control and lowered his psa from 937 down to 0.12. However, The emotional side has been the most difficult for both of us. It has had a significant on my ability to function, eat and sleep that I have been off work since last October. We have both been completely overwhelmed at times as there is so much to get your head round and come to terms with. I hope you are able to take the time off work you need. Hoping things improve quickly for for your husband too.
