Can anyone give me any information about the new Melanoma injection, I am looking into the use of this injection and wonder if there is anyone out there that has already used it yet, and what the outcome was on their dog??
I need the information ASAP because we have just been diagnosed with a malignant Melanoma...and time as you all know is of the essence.
I do hope that someone can help
Dee, How is Jas getting on now? And do you know if the injection is effective if the the lymphatic nodes were removed and the whole mass of the tumor was removed successfully and cleanly?
Hi there Martin
I do hope that you aren't talking from experiance....I don't think that the injection works if there is any other histology anywhere else, unfortunately....
Jas responded really well to the injections...the cancer actually never came back...the problem was the side affects...
When she got ill it was her liver that was the problem, it kept failing her, we fought, her and I, for a long time...but unfortunately the times that she was well, were getting smaller and smaller and she was put to sleep at the end of last year....very difficult..I don't think that I will ever get over it.....she has crossed the rainbow bridge and we will meet again..
I hope that you will not have to go through this...but the injection did work...if you would like to ask any questions just write...I will try and help if I can...if you have the same problem....
