3 month check up tomorrow
hi! I haven't written in in a while. I hope everyone is well. My husband (30) was diagnosed on 4/13, surgery 4/14 and single dose carbo-platin on 5/7. He has stage 1b (? no spread- possible LVI) seminoma.
I'm so nervous right now and I know it's natural to feel this way. He's been doing great the past couple of months and we have attempted to kind of put this behind us mentally (except when someone asks how he is and I tear up- IS THAT NORMAL? He's been fine) Now, this check up just forces us back to reality. I was hoping to get some reassurance and hear some of your stories from your 1st 3 month check up. It's not common to have a reoccurrence, right? How likely is it?
He doesn't want me to go with him to get the CAT scan tomorrow. I think I make him more nervous unfortunately I think he'll be okay. Again, given the choice, yeah, he may have wished this never happened but I can tell you that we have learned so much over the past 3 months. We both realized what's important in life- it's not work, money, the house being clean...it's our relationship and we want to be together for as long as possible....and start a family soon. Anyway, I'm babbling. Please write back and let me know how you dealt with the 1st check up. I know I will still need to take an anti-anxiety pill to sleep tonight.
