Hey ladies, Just been reading your posts and was so pleased i wasnt the only one with husband issues. Im 2 years post diagnosis now but during treatment hubby never showed his emotions, found it hard to hug me or discuss emotional stuff. He was a brilliant support though and helped around the house etc. At the time i would get so frustrated with him and its only now the dust has settled ive learnt how scared he was and he just couldn't show it to me as he had to be the strong one. He has said that it is so hard going from husband to carer and then back to husband again..id never thought of that. I wish he would have talked to someone about it all, and possibly he did just not me. I had a single masectomy with no recon and its taken a while for him to look at that too. Strangely i never had a problem with it. So husbands are a funny breed and as individual as this bloody cancer i guess. Asda is my go to for post op bras too. And mens shirts are perfect post op. Thanks for making me think about my husband, wouldnt swap him for the world but sometimes only another lady going through this can help.. so we are all here for you. Kip X

Hi Jan, Thank you for your reply. I feel ok about the chemo. I am more worried about the practical stuff. I will speak to Macmillan about financial advice and work rules for my partner and I. I hope you are ok.
