stage 4 rectal melanoma

has anyone ever gone through this type of cancer? If so what was your treatment like-did it spread at all-I have a very close family member going through this and I know this is a very dangerous a rare cancer to get.

I would appreciate anyone's experience or input on the terrible disease.

I am besides myself and don't know what to do or how I can help her.

thank you.

Re: stage 4 rectal melanoma

Hi, I was diagnosed with stage 3 rectal cancer in June 2012. I had radiation and chemo for 2 months then a frontal recession whereas the cancer was removed. I subsequently had an ileostomy (bag) for 6 months with aggressive chemo. The ileostomy was reversed in March 2013 and have continued to have severe rectal pain. The only pain medication which have been effective is Oxycontin and Lyrica.
Hope this helps.- Matthew
