My husbands has stage 4 melanoma in his lungs. He has been on a clinical trial for 21 months now. The tumor is increasing in size and now the doctor tells us he needs to get on a blood thinner (fragmin) because his arteries are clogging. He said this is common in cancer patients. Can anyone tell me if this is so wing they have either heard of or have experienced themselves. I'm very concerned. Can this be treated?
any suggestions would be very appreciated.
