My father's first symptom was fluid in his right lung. After having the fluid drained, a biopsy of the lung confirmed that he had mesothelioma. He was told that it was the early stages and that the protocol was chemo, removal of the lung and then radiation. Basically, after having his entire lung removed he was never the same. He had pain on a daily basis, loss of appetite, weight loss, very sleepy, lethargic, angry, etc... Generally from month to month we noticed that he was getting worse. August 2006, we were told that the cancer spread to the lining of the heart sac, which caused some new problems. He had fluid again in the one lung and around the heart, rapid heart beat, chest pains, leg and feet swelling, stomach swelling. We started alternative medicine but the cancer was already too advanced. Now after learning about this disease, we would have never done the operation. My family believes that alternative medicine would have been a better choice for him from the very beginning. Now it's too late for us but I am praying that for you it will help in healing your father. Please keep me posted on his treatment and progress............
