Living with a melanoma

Archive for June, 2014

here we go again

We have been quiet for a while, lots of emotional adjustment to do.  And just when we thought we were getting ‘sorted’ , that gut wrenching request ‘could you come in to get the results of your biopsy – tomorrow’.  You just know don’t you?  The most recent CT had shown 2 lymph nodes, ultrasound guided biopsy found one – histology found malignant cells.  We were told today, efficiently, effectively and honestly.  With compassion and understanding (and an offer of tea – that’s when you know its really bad).  So – lymph node clearance in the other side as ‘urgent’ – next couple of weeks.

More hospital, more pain and a drainage tube – deep joy!!

And the prognosis?  Let’s just say its not good.
