hi i am writing to see if anyone can help me with what has happened to my dad he has been diagnosed with this cancer angiosarcoma.
He was admitted to hospital last week after complaining for two whole weeks of lower abdominal pains he went to 3 separate doctors, one his own gp and twice the hospital a and e, and each time was sent home and was told he had a torn muscle in his stomach.
Then he felt a burst and had to be rushed to hospital he waited for over 3/4 hours in considerable pain to be told he had ruptured his spleen and needed emergency surgery to remove it. He had the operation they used some of the litres of blood that had leaked into his stomach and put it back into his body which is making me more worried. He was in intensive care for a week then was eventually allowed to come home where he has been since recovering.
He got called back to the hospital 2 days ago and was told the devastating news that he has got angiosarcoma cancer and that the doctors will be in touch as this is a very rare form of cancer and they need to meet to discuss the case we are still waiting 3 days on with no answers and not knowing what is going to happen to him he is 56 years of age has a wife and 4 kids me being one of them and I don’t know what else to do but try and find people i can speak to about this while the nhs and doctors discuss what to do???
Please could anyone give me some advice on treatments if you’ve heard of anybody else who’s spleen has ruptured with this cancer? what has happened? how long he’s got? if there is any drugs or anything we could try to help him anything we have had no answers no one knows anything about this its so upsetting and our family is devastated by this news
please please help me with anything you can tell me about this
