Topic: What to expect
My husband was doagnosed 01/11/05 and after a failed op left hospital on 13/12/05. He was very ill in hospital, had no appetite or energy and lost a lot of weight.
Since he has been home ( 6 weeks) he has gone from strength to strength. Today he complaoins of tiredness and had a bout of shivering in the afternoon and though he ate a reasonable dinner,didn't have quite the same appetite.
I am worried that he is about to have a relapse and I realise that I have absolutley no idea what to expect. At the moment he is not having any treatment.
Can anyone who had been diagnosed for longer tell me, how the disease develops. Do you have good periods and then relapses. Do you come out of the relapses and return to where you where before? Is there any pattern or warning that you are in for a bad period and can you do anything to avert it?
I feel I am walking in a fog with no idea what is out there.
