I’m 56 and my mum who is 77 has melanoma which has metastasised into her limbs and her brain. This is the second round for her with the first treated through immunotherapy which seemed to work.
My issue is with her care. She has extreme fatigue and weight loss for which we have had no satisfactory answers. She has been treated in three separate hospitals and they keep saying:
Frankly they don’t know, and we are at whits end.
I sent you an email yesterday with some details about our telephone support groups for melanoma and carers.
Have you spoken with the Melanoma Institute at all? They are the leaders in immunotherapy for melanoma in Australia and have a lot of resources as well.
This podcast on Managing Cancer fatigue may also be of interest. Have you looked into complementary therapies at all for your Mum?
