Hi Pam – worrying is normal and some just do it more than others (like me). My husband is one of those people that doesnt worry that much – he is also your melanoma twin – 1.25 mm, low mitotic rate, lesion on the back, Stage 3a. He turns 43 next week and was diagnosed one year ago. Scan time is horrendous, but there is no way around it. You will be doing scans for quite a while with a melanoma diagnosis (hey its one benefit of being stage 3, a silver lining). Perhaps something natural would be best for your stress? Meditation? Hypnotherapy? Although Ativan/Lorezapam is what I take! Mike refused interferon. Chosing interferon or not is a personal choice and it requires you to be very informed. If you want to chat, please let me know!
