Monica, I'm a rather new player in this too. I was diagnosed in January. I had a very small amount of mel spread to lymph nodes under my arm, but initial scans were clear every where else. So far I am doing great. I chose a wait and watch approach, as opposed to interferon (those were the only two options offered). I firmly believe I have an excellent chance of beating this thing as long as I stay on top of it.
Waiting for biopsies and scan results were probably harder on me than any of the surgeries. Good luck and try to stay positive, just remember even if the node come back positive it is not the end of the world.
