I have been diagnosed with locally advanced prostate cancer and treatment will be radiotherapy due to my age and possible effects. As the treatment intensifies will i be able to care for my wife who has advanced ppa dementia?

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    As you know, the online community is divided up into different support groups so I'm going to recommend that you also join and post this in the prostate cancer group as you'll then be connecting directly with others who will have had this treatment for your type of cancer.

    To join just click on the link I've created and, once you've joined, you can start a new post in the same way as you did here, and join in with existing conversations by clicking on reply.

    It would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment so far into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
