My husband is struggling with this and he was depressed, but now it almost seems like as if he is giving up. I am looking for any other people's help who are also taking care of someone with cancer or anyone with cancer who can lend some insight on how I can help him more ... I do not want him to feel inadequate or depressed. I am here for him.
Is your husband doing treatments or is he done?

Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions.
@Tamlisa sorry for not responding immediately. He is done now. However, he is still struggling - he still seems defeated. Even though the doctor says the cancer has been removed. Seems like he is still fearful of it coming back.
Lori49, I understand what he is going through. April 25th I will be cancer free for 2 years but in the back of my mind I have that fear that it will come back. I don’t think that will ever go away. I just live my life. I pay more attention to my body now and I have my oncologist and my pcp that I see every 3 months which does help but it’s still in the back of my mind. Has your husband talked to someone? That may help.

I agree that the fear never goes away. The best you can do is to listen and be there for him
