MightyMouse Posted April 29, 2006 Report Share Posted April 29, 2006 Hi Everyone. I am asking for good thoughts (or prayers if you're so inclined) on behalf of my first stepfather, whose name is Pat. He called me last night to let me know he has third recurrence of malignant melanoma--this time it's in his liver. We are awaiting information on whether it's metastisized elsewhere; and also what the plan will be.He's only in his 50's--and the first battle was in 1991, with a melanoma on his retina. He lost his left eye to that fight...then 5 years ago, he had a recurrence in his lung. They removed a large portion of one lung... and now it's recurred in his liver. He's already outlived all those patients for which there is available data on "occular melanoma"... and this time I'm worried because he's stated how tired he is of fighting. I'm hoping that will pass when we get out of this period of unknown--not knowing what the plan will be or what, exactly he is fighting right now.Nina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
