Hi all
My father is 72 years old and has had marks on his legs for many years which never caused him any pain until about 2 years ago. At that point he was diagnosed with Kaposi Sarcoma. He has various lumps mainly on his right foot and leg which cause him so much pain that he is unable to walk. They have spread to his lymphs but not painful there. He also has them on his lungs and recently both his lungs collapsed. He is suffering a good deal and has had several operations to remove the lesions and is on chemotherapy. He has been in and out of hospital so much recently and most staff don't seem to know what it is or how to deal with it. He is a jewish man living in north London. We don't know anyone else suffering from this and I think it would give him a great deal of comfort if he did. Also for any advice or knowledge that we don't have or information of specialists on this. I would really appreciate hearing from anybody who has it or who knows somebody who does. Thank you
