Thanks for asking, no, nothing new except maybe a bit overwhelmed. He had surgery last week. They removed 1/2 the pancreas plus spleen and came home Saturday. He just wanted to rest but his mother died suddenly the next day which involved some minor travel. He’s now staying with family for the time being. My support is limited since I have to work full time; I do what I can. The pathology results from last week’s surgery will be reviewed on Thursday. He’s nervous about this meeting since his experience, to date, has been a series of bad news. He’s understandably irritable and depressed but intermittently lashes out at me. I’d be really interested in the medical perspective regarding multiple and almost simultaneous cancers. My understanding is that my partner’s kidney and pancreatic cancer were not the same cancer, whereas the lung biopsy results were the same (stage IV) type of cancer as the kidney cancer. Retreading this, it’s quite a discouraging conundrum of medical mountains.
Thanks everyone for your concern and support 🙏.
