      He should be able to handle those mood swings the same way that you have handled the toilet seat in the up position. Men get mood swings as well when their testosterone levels start to fall. Patience is indeed a virtue. A good man can weather any storm. Best of luck to you both, Carm RN.

      I don't know the answer yet but agree with Carm - I hope your hubby can understand and keep it together through this difficult change. In thinking about that myself, and wondering how we will manage things post surgery I find all of the changes to be totally unwelcomed. I love my relationship now and am resolved to not lose this part of my life too. I will share anything I learn, I am here to learn from all of you here. That said, I think we have to work at managing our own feelings and loving our partners through 'our' challenges. If a man is going to go away, he is going to go away, but my goal is to not drive mine away. There is a difference I think. Love yourself and Love the heck out of him

      Like carm says, mood swings are a normal part of life. Right now, I think they are heightened or more drastic due to what we are going through. My husband and I did talk about how to handle them, and he has been very supportive and understanding and encouraging. Right now, I'm on steroids and WOW! Are the mood swings wild right now! Keep the lines of communication open and let him know it's not always directed at him personally and continue to love and support each other through this difficult time, Best of luck to both of you. Keep on fighting!

      When you both find the mood swings causing frustration can you pre-agree to go your own way at that moment, whether it's an hour, day, week, etc? While not a cancer patient (here as sister of someone fighting lung cancer) I myself have some significant medical issues. When I begin getting mood swings or other frustrating factors we allow ourselves time apart while being together. I'm off to the family room and he to the living room. Sometimes even me sleeping in the guest room. It's not ignoring the problem, just acknowledging sometimes the best way to deal with it is address it later or work around it!

      Support groups would be very helpful for both you & your husband. I even went to a counselor for a while.
