Topic: Husbands chemo has been stopped
We went in for my husbands doctors appointment and his ONC stopped all chemo. She said that the folfox was to help him live a better quality of life and since its doing the opposite she didnt want to continue. She said it wouldn't help him live longer. So we are on to the last step, she has referred him to Karmanos Cancer Center in Detroit that is currently doing a Phase 1 Clinical Study to see if he is eligible.
Also we have an appointment for hospice to come in just to go over things and explain that when it comes time for him to need hospice how they do things. He's not ready for hospice yet since he's still working.
I am scared out of my mind. I know he is sick but to come to the terms and except it that he's sick with cancer is totally different.
Trying to explain to the kids is the worst. It just breaks my heart.
Sometimes I have so much anger i don't know what to do with it. All i think is hes my best friend and we were suppose to grow old together. This just isn't fair!
We had so many plans for the future and to think none of its going to happen. All i wonder is why!
Has anyone else gone through a clinical trial like this? I don't know much about it yet. We go July 25 for a consultation to see if even qualifies.
Well that's it for now,
