      If you are experiencing pain and dizzyness I highly recommend you get into your doctor before September.  Things can change so quickly with Melanoma.  Eric’s leg went from only have a couple of tumors to over a hundred tumors in a month during treatment.  Eric’s Brain MRI was clean, thankfully.  He is having bouts of anger, sadness and rages along with memory issues.  Almost like someone who has dementia.  He was already taking Celexa but his doctor has prescribed him other medications that we are hoping will help. 

      Please contact your doctor and if you don’t mind, keep me in touch with how you are doing.  It’s so important to be on top of new changes when you have Melanoma.  Good Luck to you.  Jill
