Hi @dmedina71 Just thought I would check in. How is the decision-making going with your husband’s care choices? Has he started radiation treatment?

@shellsk24 how are the radiation treatments going for your husband? Do you have to travel far to the treatment center? And, of course, how are you doing!?

Hi @colleenyoung , thanks for checking on us. My husband has about 2 wks left of his daily radiation regimen. It’s going well. He’s had a little fatigue, loss of appetite, and that’s about it. I have to remind him how important it is to eat and keep up his strength, so he manages. We only travel about 10 miles to the treatment center everyday so that’s a plus. My concerns are of course AFTER the radiation treatment is over. I have researched that this is the time that you really have to monitor symptoms, and medications, as the pituitary will begin to slowly react to the trauma. We have learned of course this is a lifelong monitoring regimen that will need to be followed with 4-5 times yearly blood tests to monitor the hormone levels, etc. I’m just hoping and praying for no lasting detrimental effects of the harsh radiation. Only time will tell…
