    Devalzadvok8- I definately agree with you it is a several fold problem but I did not make that as clear as I should have. Our son wants to take over the cattle, my hubby(G) makes the excuses why he cant give full control over to our son. Our son makes steps to do things then G pulls them out of his reach yet again. I wish he could let go of the reigns enough to trust our son. And you are so right the stress of the c...

      Could you talk to a physical therapist or the like to see if they have any suggestions? Try a local nursing home for recommendations if you don't know a PT. We are very lucky in that our local nursing home has an in house PT and OT, and their doors are always open to offer suggestions. Best of luck

        I am walking the same road as you, but because of the treatment of prostate cancer my hubby's desire is not going to improve. I love him deeply but I also need the touch and love you get in a relationionship/marriage. I would not be unfaithful but somedays the need is so great. I have to be the one who hugs and touches because that is just not a part of his life anymore. Take one day at a time and blessing to you bo...

          I can not even emagine the pain, frustration, hurt, anger, and other things my husband is going through right now. I love this man deeply and thank God he put someone in my life, gave us 25+ years and 2 grown sons. He is 2 yrs out this month from finding out he had stage 4 prostate cancer that had spread to his spine. We did radiation and chemo with success in stopping the spread of cancer for the time being and curr...

            I totally agree with it being a mental battle, His chores are his cattle that he has worked so hard to have over the last 15 or so years. They are his passion, he had ideas or plans of being retired and being able to have his cattle to do everyday and not having to "work" any. But now he is battling the reality that his dream is not going to be what he thought. The part that is so hard for me though, is he wants to k...

                Hubby diagnosed 2 years ago in December, stage 4 that had spread to the spine. PSA originally over 3600, now at .002. Still gets Lupron injection every 3 months, we have battled the hot flashes and have had some successes with Folic Acid but my question is about Fatigue and the emotional damage that the loss of being able to do the daily chores/jobs. What have you done? I just put a call into the dr this am because I...

                  My hubby was diagnosed 2 yrs ago with stage 4 prostate cancer, when diagnosed his PSA was over 3600. Yes not a missprint, now it is at .002 . He is/was a very active 68yr old with a full time job and we had a cattle herd. Very physically active and now having trouble with energy levels, but that is another subject. I give him 3 folic acid 2x a day after I ran onto research that folic acid helps women's hotflashes. I ...

                    I guess because I know you all out here can relate I feel better putting this out here than posting on fb or texting to others. I get asked how my husband is doing, how is treatment, and all those other questions on nearly a daily basis. And for the most part (80% true most days) I answer truthfully that he is good, in less pain, etc etc. But when asked about me on some level I always feel like I have to be fine I ...

                      We have only been on this ride for a very short time-about a month but my husbands radiation to his spine did wonders for his pain. I pray that you have positive results on the road ahead.
