I just discovered this discussion forum and already I am glad I did. Last night I asked my wife if I should be finding someone to talk with about my/our experience with melanoma. I just had surgery a month ago to remove a large melanoma from the back of my head. Still waiting to hear from the surgeon and oncologist about further treatment. They are suggesting the possibility of more surgery, radiation, and interferon. From what I am reading interferon does not sound appealing. I find myself wondering how it will affect my ability to work over the next year. I don't want to be a burden on my family. My youngest son has his own major medical issues that sometimes require travel out of state for care.
