On Friday, I received a call from my doctor. She proclaimed to me twice, “You are one lucky lady.”
The third pathology report had just been received in her office and there is no more residual melanoma around the tumour site. She commented to me again that she had treated smaller moles/marks caught earlier that ended up being fatal.
I have a referral to the melanoma specialist on June 13, 2016. He will examine my entire body to see if there are any other areas of concern. I was advised that I am at risk for further occurrences so it is imperative that I be vigilant with monitoring and sun protection/avoidance. Genetic testing will likely be recommended for both me and my daughters.
