I am having a really hard time coping lately. As my boyfriend progresses through his intense chemotherapy regimens, his body is having a harder time te cooperating.
Last Friday he went into the hospital for a 24 hour drip. He remained in the hospital over the weekend and went home last Monday, and was excited for an entire week of no treatment.
His week was not pleasant and he has would up back in the hospital for pain mgmt and fluids due to mucositis. Has anyone or their spouses dealt with this before.
It's so hard to see him here in so much pain and not be able to do anything to make it better. The medicines they can give him to help are creating other side effects and he is miserable. I don't know what to say to him or what to do. With his treatment we are 2 hrs away from each other during the week but I spend Friday nights-Monday morning with him and try to come up overnight during the week if I can.
I just feel very useless and mad that I can't do anything to help him. Anyone relate?
