My husband had a 4 mm melanoma removed from his back in Nov. 12. They could not get dye to go to lymph nodes so they done a pet scan and found nothing. End of Jan. this yr. he started to have vision problems, flashing light etc. We went to an eye specialist who has termed it as a suspicious chroidial nexus and is watching it, we go back in June for check-up. The eye specialist also said this has nothing to do with the melanoma from his back, that even though it is called an melanoma it is totally different than the skin type. Looks etc. In the meantime, he has developed 10 new little places on his skin and one inside his lip. We went to a new dermatologist yesterday who said that the melanoma has spread including his eye! He took a biopsy of 3 places which he says he is positive it is melanoma!! He kept saying things like no use to put him through the eye treatment, mentioned chemo, brain scan, lung scan. Had a hard time understanding him and he acted like a robot or something. He just had an exam in Feb. at the surgeons office no lumps lymph glands chest x-ray Ok, even took him out to 6 mo. visits, as he was doing pretty well. His liver test was high so they took him off cholesterol medicine and told him no more aleve as they will raise liver function test and last blood test it had come down slightly. The new guy really was very negative I even asked so you are saying there is no hope for him, his reply I didn't say that. Then why is there no use to put him through treatments? I am extremely upset and very very scared.
