    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    He waited so long to go to the Dr that it spread to his brain, lungs, & abdomen.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    His chemo treatment was pretty simple and he never really got sick. He was just mostly tired. He ended up having to be an impatient for a week at a time while receiving his chemo which was his only major complaint but it was fine.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Agree

    Depression/Anxiety

    Side Effects

    He did get depressed due to him being away from me and our baby and he was still depressed when he came home but I made him fight through it by focusing his thoughts on positive things he still had going for him like the fact his Dr was/is very comforting with his promise that everything was going to be ok.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    His last chemo treatment was in November and hasn't had to have any more since his blood work has been under 5 for his HCG levels for the past 6 months.
