I am waiting on my insurance to approve this treatment for me. I have been dealing with melanoma lesions in my right leg since 2009 and am currently stage 3C. I did the interferon treatment back in 2009 but am now going on my 9th recurrence (3 lesions,1 sub-q and 2 located by a PET scan). My injections will have to be ultra sound guided which my doctor has not yet expereiced before. She has 2 other patients but they have a lot more bulky tumors visible to the eye. If you are on Facebook there are 3 closed groups for melanoma that I belong to and I think 2 members are currenlty doing the Imlygic injections. If you are comfortable friending me on FB I can get the administrators to add you to the groups. My FB profile name is Mary Louise
Would like to join the groups. I will look for you on FB. Imlygic has a patient assitance program if you have problems with insurance.
