Update! My husband’s scans are clear! I don’t know the details, but his oncology nurse called to let us know that all is good. (Can we say FANTASTIC office staff at St. Lukes Cancer Center??)
So, to recap for those of you looking for survivor stories (as I always have over the years), my husband has been NED for 8.5 years after a stage iiia diagnosis at age 26. Primary was 1.3mm on the back of his left arm, micrometastasis in the axillary lymph node basin. Wide excision on the lesion with sentinal node biopsy, followed up in 6 weeks with a complete removal of lymph nodes in the basin. No other treatments.
Whew!! :D We’re going to celebrate tonight!
