hi, I don’t even know where to start. I am righting in behalf of my dad. he has been very sick for a very long time. he was misdiagnosed with Eczema when he has skin cancer for 8 years, it is going to eventually spread to his organs, that’s what my mom told me. it is now not curable, just treatable, but he stopped going to treatment because his ears hurt to bad, and before you read any further, no its not cancer in his ears, he was tested. the symptoms are as follows, constant ear pain, worse pain he has ever felt, they bleed, the doctor refused to believe him till he brought his bloody pillow in to show him, he feels dizzy at times, gets headaches, and his glands around his neck and head are swollen, the doctor said it might be because of him grinding his teeth at night, so he got all of them pulled, his ear pain is still just as bad and he now has no teeth. the doctor has sent him to specialist after specialist and still, no answers. I love my dad VERY much, I know him well, in all those years I have never seen him cry... until now. the pain is un bearable, he cant take it no more. He doesn’t want to live anymore and I’m sick of hearing that the doctors cant help. His doctor has been giving him ear drops for swimmers, and he’s been using them for over a year now, and they don’t help. All I want is some answers. I want to help my dad sooo much, I want to be able to tell my dad what to ask for when he sees the doctor next because the doctor apparently don’t know anything. My dad has an addictive personality, he doesn’t do anything now, years ago when he was young, but even now, the doctor ask my dad what he wants instead of checking to see what he needs. I want my dad to live as long as possible, I’m not ready to loose him, if I can help him find out what’s wrong with his ears, maybe he will start going to treatment again. Just righting this letter bring tears to my eyes. Please, if you can help me, I will be eternally grateful and my family will be too. If you have any answers please reply here or directly to my email jessiebell420@hotmail.com
