Dear Janis, I have walked in your shoes, and I share your grief and frustratins. The worst has now happened and now is the time for healing and caring for yourself, and down the road the opportunity to help others with their fight with melanoma. My husband died 9 years ago, and like yours had a lesion on his chest, no SNB(they still don't do them routinely in Canada), was told they had it all..and died in 7 months. Treaure the years you had after dx and the wonderful freedom from melanoma when you got the news you didn't even need check-ups.
I would love to keep in touch with you as you begin your new different life, it is a long process, but if you know you have the support of understanding friends it makes it much easier to bear.
I will share my email with you if you wish..My best thoughts go out to you…Joan Robinson
