      If you have Melanoma and want to treat it, you better not have Heart Disease.  Tried  to get into a Clinical Trial, no luck.  Dr. says he can't treat it with anything strong that may stop growth because of the bad heart.  And it is bad so no arguement there.  I will not have any more Dr. appt. or CT Scans so that is that. Maybe I can find some un-orthodox treatment that will help. This will be my last post.

          Very sorry to hear that your heart disease is causing you difficulty.  Which clinical trial were you trying to get into?

              That is a common problem I have heard from a lot of prople trying to join clinical trials.  I wish this wouldn't be your last post, you still may find helpful suggestions and support here.
