My 39 year old husband has recently been diagnosed with Oesophageal Cancer and is having an oesophagectomy on 12 Sept. We are terrified. He can't process it in his mind - he's seriously considering not having the op and letting himself die from cancer instead. That is not an option from my perspective- at all! Part of the problem is that he's a Type 1 diabetic and he can't see how he'll be able to manage it after the oesophagectomy. Is there anyone on here with experience of that? He's scared of 'dumping' as he has a busy job, travelling and meeting customers in Europe; he's scared of being in pain; he thinks the cancer will come back; he thinks he'll have constant hypos; and he thinks that maybe it's all just not necessary. This is so so hard - and I don't know how to make it better.
