I've been caring for my 81 year old husband for over a
year now. His cancer spread to his bones. He was
diagnosed prostate cancer, candidate for radiation
about five years ago. He never did anything about it
until Nov. '98. Does anyone out there have a similar
experience? His urologist put him on a series of pills
the main one being cortef. He also is taking nizoral
and pepcid. He was on morphine but later was put on
oxycontin which we stopped all together. He has very
little pain. I would like to hear about someone elses
experience. I keep a journal in order for me to
remember what transpired yesterday, etc. I have a good forgetter. I thank God I have a family that helps me. Plus we have hospice which is wonderful.
How do other people cope I'm wondering. Am I the only one that finds this experience frustrating?
