Melanoma and Mesothelioma

I have recently been diagnosed with mnetastatic melanoma Stage 4 and Mesothelioma. I have had surgery to remove what could be seen and am now using complimentary medicine but unsure of some of the advoce given. I would love to talk to survivors of either of these 2 cancers and what helped them

Re: Melanoma and Mesothelioma

My husband is 73 was diagnosed with mesothelioma and has just had his first round of chemo to try to buy some time, At his age the chances of having a year or two seem grim. Had his right lung drained and packed with talcum. He slept for a week but didn't have any other reactions to chemo. Had a rash but Dr suggested antihistamines which seemed to help. have just joined and can't find any other people with mesothelioma. Elise.
