      After it was delayed for a week, I had radiofrequency ablation for the lesion on my liver yesterday. The pathologist confirmed that it was melanoma. The doctor said he took good margins. I feel pretty rugged today, but I'm going to remain optimistic.

              The wait must have been miserable. Waiting always is.  Glad he was able to get wide margins, and hopefully this will be the last you see of mel!

              Take it easy for a bit till you feel stronger. Let Joy wait on you!

                  Walter,

                   

                  Yes, stay optimistic and positive.  Keep us posted on how you're doing.  I know I've heard of RFA for liver lesions but can't remember anyone that had it done.  There are others that might be interested.

                   

                  Stay Strong
