I am brand new to this group. My dad (age 72) was just diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma last week. It has been found in his lungs, lymph nodes, liver, spine, and brain. Full brain radiation began Friday (one treatment so far, no weekend treatment, 10 treatments total). We are still figuring out what treatment will be done on the rest of his body. He has ulcerative colitis and they are concerned that immunotherapy will be too tough on that disease. Some general questions I have: Has anyone gone through full brain radiation? What was your experience with it? After one treatment, my dad is already having issues forming sentences. Any tips/tricks/advice on helping his brain create new paths? Has anyone else been diagnosed with melanoma, but also has ulcerative colitis? Was immunotherapy done or another treatment? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
