Do you have any tips or advice that may help others support those who are going through treatment, including with any ongoing side effects?
Ongoing side effects are whole body sweats for my husband and loss of memory
I feel I have to step up and check any decisions but also be mindful that I’m not taking over or undermining all decisions
Please tell us how their treatment impacted your life the most.
A huge sense of loss, the thought of losing my life partner /husband at such a young age is unbearable
The treatment plan has effected our sex life but I’d much rather still have my husband and best friend
Thinking about your own wellbeing, what has helped you to cope, and where have you gone to find support? What tips and advice would you give to others?
In the first instance my concerns were for our children so I spoke to MacMillan nurses
I talk to friends and have joined a book club to give me some distractions
