First, I have to say I am so happy to have found this site.
My 41 year old husband was diagnosed with this last October. Stage 4. We are completely devastated (more I) he has been going through chemo sessions since early November 2011. Just had his 2nd pain block, but is still in severe pain. I feel helpless when he is up all night trying to get relief, he hates taking pain medication. My hubby is a very busy, hardworking man, he has been playing ball for over 20 years & to see his slow down is so hard for me to watch, he is still working hard, he said it takes his mind off of the disease, as soon as he lays down to relax the pain kicks in.
I need people to talk to, we have 4 boys, we are a blended family, ages 20, 19, 15 & 12.
They gave my hubby 12-18 months, it's been just over 12, so I am hopeful & holding on to a miracle. I have read some post about people losing their loved ones to this awful disease & it breaks my heart, I pray for your families to find peace in your heart.
At what point do people feel like things are getting worse? he's been in so much pain since the beginning that I don't know what to look for, what to do, I ask a million questions at the doctors office, but I just don't get the answers I am looking for.
