    In Decemeber I posted on a thread that my husband had been going for tests because he had swollen glands....
    .....turns out he has cancer.
    Not the news we expectd as all. I was so sure that everything was going to be ok - looks like you can be too hopeful.

    Oh dear. This must have come as an awful shock to you both. The medics can do amazing things these days so please try not to give up hope. I hope it has been caught in time and that he receives all the best treatment.

    The medics are making advances in cancer care all the time. I know the initial reaction is to panic, and automatically assume it's a death sentence. As time goes on, though, you will be more able to make informed choices about what happens next. In the meantime, consider yourselves both hugged.
     
  8. What a terrible shock for you all.

    My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Anything I can do, let me know.
     
  10. salsera, I assume that he has Hodkinson's then? Cancer of the lymph nodes? If so, take heart from the fact is it very treatable and I know plenty of people who have got through it.

    Lots of hugs and good thoughts.

    i can remember posting 2 years ago with a non-serious health worry..that turned out to be cancer too....but you will get through it....treatment is improving all the time and far more people live and survive with cancer these days....i recommend seeing if the re are any support groups online or in the real worls cos they can help and ask all those sorts of questions that only people going through it can ask.....thinking of you This too wil pass...xx

    Hope all treatment offered is positive and soon he be back mended!

    Please remember he has the illness but you will need lots of support too! Sometimes it is just as hard for the partner as it is for the patient, so take every bit of help/support/etc from anyone who offers!

    Wishing you both the best of luck and love!
