July '08 diagnosed melenoma on my back. August '08, two nodes under my left arm were removed and both were metastisized melenoma. A week later they removed 25 more under the same arm. 1 more node was positive with cancer..I did radiation as a follow up from the surgery. A year to the day I am told it might of moved to my lungs but lets wait 6 months to confirm it. After a second opinion I go in for a CT on Aug 6th '09, and then maybe a PET.
The whole process seemed vague..maybe, maybe not..my only side effect so far is the lymphodemia from removing the nodes and a mild cough..
I am reading that metasitised melenoma in the lung is a death sentence...???
