I am so sad for him and our family.
He is 35.
We thought that the ultrasound that was ordered would show a gall stone issue.

There are masses on his liver that is showing more than 50% of it is infected.

It is not looking good.

I just need to say this--not our friends or family. Re-hashing the details is painful and headache inducing.

I cannot believe that this is happening.

Scared and so sad.

OK. Newbie. This is how it works. If your post consists of 80% sanity, 10% stupidity and 10% all kinds of crazy, we immediately focus on the 20% b/c it discredits the 80%.

I'm so sorry- what a dreadful shock this must be. I have had bowel cancer and know how shocked I felt at the diagnosis. A common metastasis for colon cancer is Liver cancer, so I have made several friends through a support group who have/have had liver cancer. They are all undergoing various types of treatment- surgery,ablation , chemo, with varying degrees of success ie they are still alive, but some have been lucky with the first treatment whilst others have needed repeat or different treatment.
Identify some support for yourself right away, so that you can support him without burning out with stress.

I will keep you and your husband in my thoughts and prayers. Could we know his name, so that the prayers are more personal?

It's not the passage of time that heals. It's what you do with that time.

Been going thru this with DH lately. We're only married for 2 years, so I feel especially "blue". He has bladder cancer but they got all of it and now we have to keep on top of it with a surgical procedure every 3 months. TAKE 1 DAY AT A TIME. Keep a journal (best advice!!). Write things down. Research them. Be his cheerleader. I know it seems bleak sometimes, but hopefully it'll get better. Prayers to you both.
