My husband Mike was diagnosed with Parkinsons about 4 years ago. He has always been such a healthy man, it was a big shock. He is 55 now & doing pretty well with his medications. It’s still hard on him some days, he can’t get out of a chair or he is just so tired he has to go to bed at 6-7pm. His friend gave him a lift chair & it’s a wonderful thing!
We found out about 2 months ago (after I bugged him to see his Dr for blood tests) He now has Prostate Cancer. Its very early, just in a few cells. The Dr feels certain he can get it all by doing a prostatectomy. He doesn’t think Mike will need any other treatment. We will go to Vanderbilt hospital in Nashville on Monday,May 23rd. The surgery is Tuesday at noon.
I know with Mike’s Parkinsons it will be a slower recovery time, I would appreciate any advise on how I can help him in his recovery. My husband has always been such a strong man & I just hate seeing him so sad & helpless.
