Is there anyone here who has either considered or who has had their limb, specifically leg in our case, amputated?
In our case, Jerry's started on his toe, had toe amputated, local recurrence, had Isolated Limb perfusion, then intransits after, then tumor in thigh, started chemo, seem to have had another tumor pop up this weekend. In addition to the melanoma problems, Jerry's foot has not healed since the limb perfusion 10 1/2 months ago, and he is dealing with osteomyelitis in the foot, very limited feeling and movement in the foot, etc. We just don't know if he will ever have normal feeling and movement ever again. So far the melanoma has been isolated to the limb, and it won't leave the limb alone.
Trying to decide what to do.
Thank you for any thoughts,
