Hi everybody, I had the first of my melanoma surgery today. For those of you who are new, I am a colon cancer patient of 1 1/2 years and recently diagnosed with melanoma on my nose and on my arm. I got home from the surgical center today at 3:30pm and all went well. Nose is in a bandage - looks pretty strange. Next Friday, the 23rd I have the arm surgery done, then hopefully its all over!! Yeah. The nose came out clean. So I am thankful.
All of you out there coping with your diagnosis, you are in my prayers. I had my colon surgery 1 and 1/2 years ago and finished my chemo a year ago July 9. I have been blessed that I have been in remission since, except for the diagnosis of melanoma on the nose and arm. But that is OK, I can beat that too.
God's blessing to all of you.
