Thanks for the info. My husband was in Viet Nam for 2 years. He is 68 years old. He has had 2 major face surgeries on his right check. Malignant Melanoma. I say Agent Orange has something to do with it. He goes to the VA Hospital in MN. He has to have a private doctor to look at him to say it’s caused by the sun from Viet Nam. I think that’s Bull Shit!!! It seems to me the Government doesn’t want to own up to this terrible poison called Agent Orange. I have been to the VA hospital with him and have seen many of these men suffering from all of this. God Bless them All!!! Thank You for your Service!

Thanks for asking. It seems better. I do have more energy but I still find I can only do so many tasks in a day. We are getting ready to sell our house and move back to Wisconsin, so I have been busy cleaning and packing and painting to get everything ready. I do rest when I need to.

As of Aug.17th after seeing my Oncologist at Mayo he said it would be alright with him if I wanted to stop the Leukine. I had started taking the Leukine in November of 2014. So it’s almost 2 years. I was having very little energy while I would be on it. I had to take it for 14 days on and then 14 days off. I could always tell the difference when I was on it. I also have Fibromyalgia so the further along I was on The treatment it seemed to effect my energy level. I have been off since Aug.16th and can really tell the difference. I also gained 20 pounds while on the Leukine. So far I have lost 5. I am happy about that. I will be going every 3 months again for my PET SCANS, which is perfectly ok with me. So I am tumor free since Dec 29, 2014. That was the day of my liver surgery at Mayo.
I would love to hear how other people are doing.
Best regards,

I Stage 4 malignant melanoma in my small bowel and my liver. Both were surgically removed. I was on Leukine shots for almost 2 years. Just want to see if there are other people out there that experienced any of this diagnosis? Pam
