And Now For Something Truly Unexpected… Melanoma
Just a brief update that I really wasn’t expecting to give, until a phone call arrived a short while ago.
I was diagnosed with melanoma today – so far it looks like it is only localized but please pray/send me positive vibes that the sentinel lymph node biopsy turns out good (i.e. no spread beyond the primary small mole that was diagnosed).
Statistically, since the melanoma spot was small/thin it looks like only a 5% chance that it has spread to the lymphs… so unlike most of my CRC journey, stats are actually in my favor but I have to admit, I did not see this coming… when it rains it pours…
One good aspect of facing Stge 3C/4 CRC for almost 3 years now – nothing phases me anymore… I’m going to stay positive & take things in stride until the biopsy.
