Hi there everyone. After spending 4 months on the cancer rollercoaster, thought it would help to get online with people in similar situation. This is all new to me so please please please forgive me if I prattle on. I am supporting my father with advanced metastasized melanoma cancer. I feel like I am the only daughter who has supported her young 60 year old dad suffering from cancer. Dads last surgery happened a month ago, where he had 2/3 stomach removed, half liver removed and his spleen removed. This was his 3rd major surgery in 4 months. His surgeon has now said NO MORE SURGERY. Doctors are talking quality of life not quantity so no other treatment options. It just doesnt seem fair. My father has been a busy, active man who never gets sick and here he is, being dealt with a form of torture. It really sucks!
