Caregiver to Prostate Cancer Patient
My long time partner had Prostate Cancer in 2005 and had Radical Surgery. In February of 2015 he was diagnosed with Cancer in his Spine, Left Arm, and Stage 4 Lung Cancer. He had 6 weeks of Radiation, 10 months of Chemo and had been on Opdivo for 15 months. The Cancer is gone from his Spine and Arm. Opdivo infusions are keeping his Lung Cancer from spreading.
This had been a long journey, but our life is very good.
I met with my Urologist, plus two Cancer Specialists. I had Fiducial Markers and Space Oar last Friday.
I will begin 39 Proton Radiation Treatments around Sept. 4th.
I understand the meaning of good days and bad, but together we will face this head on.
My prayer is that I will be strong enough to continue to be my partner’s main Caregiver and Supporter!
