I was dignosed in 2008 stage 2. Went through 7 months of treatment with Revlimed and dex.
I was off med for 17 months and it came back. Treated for 1 months and my numbers improved. Was off meds for 3 more months and it came back again. I am now on my third month of treatment. It seems it will never stop. That is two relapses after my initial treatment,

Hi, I have stage III malignant melanoma. The only treatment I have had was radiation.
My doctor wanted me on interferon for a year. But after I checked all the sats, it wasn't worth a year of being sick, for just a 10% to 40% return. If that was on my money it would be great...LOL I'm going back in April to have another PET scan done.
I guess what I want to say is that you are so brave, and a fighter.
You can handle anything, so hang in there. I'm here anytime.

Take care
