Chemo and Radiation and IL-2, along with a slew of other drugs and treatments and surgeries have actually saved my life a few times now. I have been
battling Metastatic Melanoma for the past ten years. I'm now 38, so youth and health have been on my side most of the way.
How do you feel about allowing these nasty things into your body? I figure, when it's your time, let nature take it's course.
Nature is gonna take its course anyways my man, we are all dying one day at a time, even though everyone goes around pretending that they aren't.
Stay positive attitude and don't believe the doctors. I know, it sounds like some cliche nonsense, but your mind is more powerful than any medicine
your doctor can ever give you. Never give up. Never believe the bad. Be stubborn, get hard headed. The only time being a stubborn person has seemed to
serve me well is fighting the damned disease.You have to see the light at the end of the tunnel for there to ever be one. Its hard to do though, in 6
months i lost 60 pounds, all my hair, my skin turned red and all flaked off like a sunburn, neuropathy, constant headaches, stomachaches, nausea,
rashes, thrush, etc. etc. It is hard while this disease (and the supposed "cure") are destroying you physically and you can see it and feel it, and
all the while your friends and relatives come and look at you like they are never going to see you again.
Never let it break your spirit. Don't give it that power.
3 people out of 100 with stage 4 melanoma had the response that I did to the IL-2/chemo treatments, so I would definitely say that my results aren't
typical. But there are no other treatments for it. Normal chemo does nothing without the interleukin therapy. It did save my life though, I just wish
it would work for the other 97 out of 100.
