I just found out my husband has Ocular Melanoma. (cancer in his eye)
The tumor is now too big to be removed by Radiotherapy treatment.
At first this came as a shock of course, but the most important thing is to get rid of the cancer right?
Well for the last few hours i have been sitting in front of the computer trying to learn as much possible
I found out that half the people who are diagnosed with this....die!!!
(Because it spreads to the liver and then there is no cure.)
The doctor obviously did not tell us this.
And i have not told my husband, as i know he is very very upset about this and needs time to digest.
We dont know how long he has had this. a few months ago he got blurred vision in his left eye,
If they had discovered it earlier, the tumor would be smaller, and it could've been removed without removing the eye, he could've got vision back, and had treatment to avoid the cancer spreading!!!
But now were are here!
And we have to somehow deal with this...the best we can!!
ANY HELP of ANY KIND....would be appreciated !!!
