som eweeks ago i posted about caancer in the eye, are any of those who answered me around please?
I am, its MIL who has it and has had treatment. I am not at all familiar with this and there were a few people who had had soem experience of it. Were very helpful at the time, but as is always true of these things, many more questions have come up.
I've had patients with this and you are right- it can be a nasty course. On the other hand a friend of my mum's was treated for the same nearly 10 years ago now and is doing fine at the moment (just lost the sight in that eye obviously).
It depends a lot on the size and type of melanoma.
Fingers crossed for you both, hope your MIL is the latter and does well.
