Nasopharangeal

My partner is undergoing treatment for nasopharangeal cancer, stage 2. He has refused chemo after six months of intensive radiotherapy. The cancer is in it's second plateau and not responding. I am at my wits end as he will not listen to the doctors advice and is being unbelievably stubborn. Does he want to die??

Hi looby65 , sorry to hear this , he is doing the worst bit having the radiotherapy , if he can go through this then he will find chemo will be easier in most cases . Having this will give them a better chance of stopping or controlling the cancer as many on this site can vouch for . Of course I cannot tell him what to do as the choice is his , I know what I would have done . Lets hope he listens to you and the Dr or he or can send me a private message if he wants help or advise . Good luck ,all the best .
