Well, folks, I’m feeling a little better today and capable of proceeding with this dreadful subject. The doctor I saw at Moffitt went over all the numerous facets of melanoma with me. Basically, a lot depends on whether it has spread, and if so, how much and to where. As I understand it, this will be determined the next time I go for treatment.They will inject something that will flow through me to find out what’s going on and where. Also, they will remove the “source” place and sew it up.
While I was there, the doctor removed another suspicious small lump in my armpit and sewed it up. He used something before the numbing needle so I had no pain whatsoever during the short operation. Wish me luck.
