Thanks for sharing your story. Many of us are in similar situations, and it is scary. Know that there are MANY success stories. I am in a clinical trial through the Angeles Clinic taking Taxotere and YM155 for metz in my left lung. I am hoping to be one of those success stories soon!
I think the most important element in treatment is to make sure you are working with a Dr. who has extensive experience with Melanoma. There are so many clinical trials going on with very promising drugs! Your doctor has to help you access the treatment that is best for you. Where do you live? I'm sure that others on this board can suggest clinics near you if necessary. I am being treated by the John Wayne Cancer Center / Angeles Clinic in Santa Monica, CA. But, there are many centers that can help you find the best treatment, or confirm what you are currently doing.
Bless you in your efforts. Keep up the faith!
