My boyfriend recently passed away. He had stage iv melanoma. He received one round of IL-2 in November. He was at hospital to have round two of IL-2. He had fluid in his lung, and wouldn't give it to him. Gave him another chemo.  He was home for two days, ended up back in hospital with a blood clot. Blood pressure dropped and ended up in ICU for ten days.  He was too sick to scan but doctor thinks he may have mets to lining of stomach. For a few weeks, he couldn't eat, lost tons of weight and only wanted to lay in bed. I am still in shock. Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience.
