Hi Sharyn. Thank you for your reply. I know I have read that it will show up on the stump. Let me tell you this melanoma stuff is the creepiest. I know you don’t mean to scare me. I wish it weren’t scary, but it completely is. I feel like we are always trying to get away from a murderer, like Friday the 13th or something. I am a Christian, but I just can’ t stop the worrying and the fear.
We are Braf and Ckit negative, wild type. He has been on Everolimus, Paclitaxel and Carboplatin. He had been responding well, but the last treatment was delayed due to low blood count, and it seems melanoma took the chance to strike again.
We haven’t tried Ipilimumab or IL2 yet so it is nice to know we have options yet.
Thank you Sharyn
Sending hugs back your way,
