So today I have been doing some research on what to expect for Chris in the third round of chemo and beyond. We have been talking in the abstract about our summer plans “after chemo”, uncertain how long it will take for him to feel like he is on the mend. So I figured seeing what other people may have written about their personal experiences would reveal.
In that search, I found this blog: http://austinelling.us/content/testicular-cancer-beginning
In it, blogger Austin Elling gives a concise rundown of each stage of his testicular cancer journey, from diagnosis, through surgery, sperm banking, and each of the three rounds of chemo. It’s a pretty easy read without too much detail, but enough to get the story across. Sounds like his symptoms in general surround chemo were more intense than Chris’ have been, but it is striking how his story and his wife’s perspective (also shared in the blog) unfolded so similarly to ours. Check it out if you’re interested!
