There are doctors and people out there who understand what you are going through; it is just a matter of finding them. I know we have found the right team for me.
My advice for other patients is to have a good support system and to never give up. My wife has been an amazing caregiver and was there with me every step of the way.
Some days I am winning and other days the cancer is gaining ground. But with my family, friends and doctors cheering me on, I am better off than I was when I first was diagnosed.
I was responding well at first, but eventually my side effects became too much to bear. I visited a doctor to explore surgical options. The surgeons were able to remove most of the cancer and we found a therapy that worked for me.
