I was just wondering if anybody has recently been put on the Drug Leukine for their Melanoma. I was diagnosed in October of 2009 with Stage 3 Melanoma. It was found with a bothersome mole on my back. Ok, when I say bothersome, I mean it was raised and irritated by my bra strap. I work at a hospital so I went by one of our Surgeons and asked if he would just cut it off. Well needless to say it turned up cancerous. I underwent a sentinal node biopsy, which in turn led to a radical disection on my lymph nodes under my left arm. At first my Oncologist was going to put me on Interferon but after talking with a doctor at Mayo Clinic change his mind to Leukine (which isn't FDA approved to treat Leukine yet) I am almost a year and a half into my 3 year journey on this medication and with my last doctor appointment my Oncologist has now said that what was a 3 year journey is now a life long journey. When I am done with the 3 years of what he says is high dose treatment I then have to go through maintanance doses the rest of my life. Ok, I thought 3 years was a long time to so called "place my life on hold" but now to do this my whole life is very bothersome. I am just wondering if anybody is on it and if they are going though the same worries as I am.
