I try to refrain from coming here to seek counsel on issues that directly involve solely myself and the people I'm close too, but right now I've got something to ask.
My uncle was recently (two days ago) diagnosed with cancer, which metastasized from his melanoma (which was treated three years prior) to his lymph nodes, and possibly to a region of his abdomen. I have heard the prognosis for this isn't very good, but my uncle lives a very physically active lifestyle (cycling, golf) and is a health nut (compared to his brothers). He is very prudent in making sure he eats well and monitors his antioxidant intake. He is only 62 years old. We have plenty of reason to be optimistic for these reasons.
He reports that for the past two weeks he has felt like his strength has been sapped from his body, and he finally went to the doctor Monday. He is in good spirits overall, albeit frustrated that the Detroit Tigers are getting their ass handed to them by the Oakland Athletics. He says he'll do whatever it takes to get better.
So, that being said, does anyone else have a similar experience with lymphatic melanoma or can offer support during this time?
