Hi Guys, I'd be interested in your feedback on an issue thats really concerning me at the moment,
my partner ( and soon to be husband ) Felim, is just coming up on a year since he was diagnosed with a pituitary macrodenoma, which was partially resected by transphenoidal approach last year and he finished his 6 week course of rt in April.
He has suffered from headaches almost daily and extreme fatigue.
But over the last few weeks, he has been displaying what looks like Post Traumatic Stress.
There are personal issues that he always had from childhood and the lack of family support, which he accepted but these have now all come to the fore, aswell as that he is convinced that because his tumor is inoperable that it will mutate and kill him.
I have spoken to his doctor who is anxious to see him but he refuses to see there is a problem.
Have any of you suffered or encountered post traumatic stress after treatment and how should I deal with it?
Thanks Amanda, I suppose I was naive in thinking that once we had surgery and treatment behind us the worst is over, I think you just enter a different phase of it. I was thinking therapy would be helpful to address not just the issues he has with his illness but also issues he has kept regressed from childhood. Thanks for your advice and I'm so happy to see therapy has helped you
