DH just started week 4 of radiation. I more week to go.

Last week (week 3) was long and tiring but we made it through.

Saw the surgeon this morning and if all goes well it looks like they will be able to do surgery in mid August.

Keeping our spirits up but slowing down on expectations of what gets accomplished in a day

Well how's it going? Is radiation over for now? Did they schedule surgery for your DH?

Hi Everyone,

The last 10 days have been crazy.
DH finished radiation last monday.
Only minor irritation to the skin so we are lucky there.
He was so very tired last week.
The Dr.'s said he would be as the radiation peaks a few days after completion.
We go back to the hospital next Monday for his pre-op MRI and blood work.
We then hopefully will be told when his surgery is going to be.

The first hurdle is finished
Now onto the second!!

Good Luck with the surgery. I agree with TaraPA that everything sounds like it is going on a positive track.

I know that each situation is unique but I remember being told that radiation continues to work in your body for up to 30 days. Unfortunately that means the tiredness continues also. I suppose it depends on the strength and placement of the radiation.

Everything crossed for all the sufferers out there

I was diagnosed with bowel cancer after I returned from WDW last year, diagnosed in November, 2 rounds of surgery in December and February I'm now 4 months into my chemo... suffering a little but I've been really lucky throughout.

I feel for anyone that has to go through this and know that many are far worse off than me.

My prognosis is good and I've booked my next WDW trip for April next year to celebrate.

Does anyone know of a travel insurer that doesn't cost the earth for cancer sufferers?

Also, my consultant oncologist advises that my fingerprints may have disappeared by the time I travel, any advice on passing through Orlando Intl with a passport but no fingerprints to scan?

I will be praying for you and your family during this time. I finish my last radiation treatment tomorrow so I know how exhausting it is. It sounds like you are keeping a good positive attitude and that is half the battle. Keep us informed and I will keep praying

Thank you Everybody

I cannot describe how good it feels to receive an email in the hospital waiting room from a total stranger with a common love for DISNEY!!!!

DH's surgery is tomorrow and we are just gathering things up that he will need.

The surgical oncologist is confident that everything will go fine but it is a little nerve racking reading over all the if's and's...etc....

So being the totally positive people that we are being....we went ahead and booked our Disney vacation for next summer!!!

It is our something to look forward to.

Prayers for a successful surgery tomm. for your dh.

Hope your dh heals quickly and that he wont be in too much pain or discomfort. I found out that the morphine pump was my friend in the hospital for sure!

A disney trip is a great thing to look forward to on the road to recovery.

Wishing him all the best.

DH had his surgery last Wednesday so I am a little behind on the boards.
Surgery went well according to the surgical oncologist.
We return in four weeks and DH will have the compression bandages and stitches removed.
We will also be be told if he needs follow up treatment.

DH is really keeping his spirits up.
Got up this morning and got all ready for work!
Blew me away but I know that work is his diversion

Hoping for a great day.

What good news! I can't believe he's going to work--such a positive thing.
Continued thoughts and prayers for his complete recovery.

So glad to hear that your dh surgery went well.

I guess it is good that he has his work. I am sure it helps him mentally. It gives him an outlet to focus on something else instead of being sick, tests, doctors etc.

Hope he heals well. Take care of yourself too.

Wishing your dh and you all the best.
