Partner diagnosed with cancer last September and has just finished radiotherapy.
Hello I am new to this forum but I am so happy that I found it. It's so hard trying to get things off your chest when you partner is dagnosed with cancer. Everyone offers you help which is a wonderful support but actually talking to someone about what is going through your mind is extremely difficult unless they have been through it themselves. My husband was diagnosed last September with salivary gland cancer and had a neck dissection operation. A few weeks after the operation he had five weeks of radiotherapy to head, neck and shoulder area and next week he starts three months chemotheray. We have two young children and it has been a real emotional rollercoaster for us all. The thing I am finding very hard at present is that my partner has become very grumpy and although I understand how terrible he must be feeling, I also feel sorry for my children who don't really understand why he has these outbursts of anger. He is starting chemo next week and I am so worried that it is gong to get worse. We are all supporting him and helping him in every way possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
