Just got the results from the WLE and SNB – No residual cellular blue nevus or melanoma is identified.
Surgery is scheduled for Friday when they will close up the incision on my scalp. It’s pretty large, and you can see my skull, so I’m really looking forward to having it closed and not having to look after it anymore. Obviously very excited about the biopsy results as well.
Given that it was melanoma ex blue nevus, recurrence rate is high and I will need to be checked regularly for the next few years. As of 2018 there were only 150 documented cases in literature. Not sure where I fit in, but they’re doing a case study on me as well.
Extremely elated obviously, but also cautiously optimistic. All this disease needs is one cell to ruin lives, but for now I can breathe a little easier.
