Could do with some advice if anyone has got any experience of this type of thing please. 

 

Sadly, my father in law has been diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus. The only bit of 'good news' is that it hasn't spread so in theory he could have the operation. 

 

However, he needs to be fit enough for the op as it's supposed to be major and he's 73. They took him in for this treadmill test and said that, at present, he's not fit enough for it.

 

He's otherwise fit, but as he hasn't been eating and only been given milkshakes to drink which he hasn't been drinking as he doesn't like them, he's also not been going out much as he's scared of catching Covid. Also, if he does have the op, he'll need a few months' of chemo beforehand which I imagine will set his energy levels back too.

 

I asked what the doctors had said in terms of getting him in shape, and they've only given this mealy mouthed business about finding him some different milkshakes. Nothing about a fitness programme or anything else. 

 

I feel this is make or break, as a family we need to get him in shape somehow, but also find ways to keep him optimistic and give him something to aim for. Any ideas if a charity or anyone would have any specific advice on this?

Just got to get on with it, we basically knew a couple of weeks ago, convinced the Mrs to go to the docs on Monday and scan today confirmed it, results will confirm the severity.

 

We're a pair of cunts and will take this head on, fuck it.

Sorry to hear this brother. Love to your Mrs,  I know there's no such thing as a silver lining but in these circumstances, it's good that there's a treatment plan in place. She will get there mate, you both will.

Sorry fella.

My missus was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, she found it was easier to deal with once she knew. Hardest part was telling family and friends.

8 years free now.

Hope your journeys go the same way.

FUCK YOU CANCER, SHITHOUSE.

Best of luck with everything Stouffer. Its a prick but I found positivity and dealing with the present day the best way for me to deal with it. No point in worrying about tomorrow - get through today and deal with tomorrow then. It reduces the overwhelming aspect of the whole thing. The support from family and friends was so helpful so just be there and let her know she is loved and has a great future with you. That will help her through the rough times. 

I dunno if I told this story before but while waiting on biopsy results (the doc had told me in not so many words I had cancer) I had a nightmare where I was just about to crash and I woke thinking "I don't want to die"

That moment got me through the shit, horrible, painful, awful times. I was willing to go through anything to survive. It's amazing the strength and power both physical and mental, you get when you really want something. Give her that feeling - that she has a lot to fight for and she will be alright. Take care of yourself too.

Proud of you Ray, that's what we're going with. 

 

Fuck you Cancer. (Not Ray, he's a leg').
