My husband has been diagnosed with salivary gland cancer, it started four months ago as a pimple on his cheek and now is larger than a tennis ball, he has two ulcerated tumours that are bleeding and infected still three weeks after they burst.
We are going to the hospital this Thursday to see the maxillofacial surgeon who will tell us the next step for treatment. We are both scared and so worried about what they will say.
Does anyone know what we might expect when we go please?
My family were very supportive when I first told them but now I hardly get a phone call and they never ask about how we are they just want to talk about themselves. On top of being so depressed this isn’t helping and now I don’t want to tell them anything about what is happening and when we talk I just pretend everything is fine. Any advice please?
Thanks for listening Victoria
