    Stage 4? Optimistic?!? I would sure not be optimistic if I had stage 4 cancer. I’d be depressed. Very.

    He’s just started chemo and radiation, he won’t know if he needs to have surgery for about 6 weeks, he has said. If he has surgery, he won’t be able to talk and his health will decline significantly because of the extended radiation and or chemotherapy he will need. My sister-in-law has this type of cancer. It’s a horrible thing to witness, I can’t imagine what it’s like to have to go through it.

    Radiation and Chemotherapy have some serious life threatening side effects. Chemo can inhibit the body’s ability to fight infections, cause low red blood cells count ( anemia) and cause low platelet count which can cause excessive bleeding or the tendency to bruise easily.

    I hope that he does go into remission and he doesn’t have to have surgery. That’s a very hard road to go down with this disease. He wants to live, he has to TRY to stay positive; I’m sure that he does have his fears, who wouldn’t.
