Scan results – Stage IV NED 4 years 2 months

Forums General Melanoma Community Scan results – Stage IV NED 4 years 2 months

    We had a scare today with scans. The doctors thought that a spot on my husband's spine might be melanoma so we had to do another scan MRI of the back to check it closer. It ended up being inflamation. We were so relieved words cannot even express it. My husband progressed to stage IV when our kids were 1 and 3 years old. Here we are 7 years later, 3 of those years spent working towards NED. This has been such an emotional roller coaster ride, but we are thankful each day that we have enjoyed and spent doing things with the kids and that he is here for them.

    I just wanted to share some good news.

        Josh,

        I know you recently had surgery, I read this site every week to see how others are doing. I hope you get good news soon and can keep moving forward. There are people out there that are just living their lives after stage IV and they don't visit here as often.

        Again, I hope you get good news.

        Yes, GP100 vaccine, then IL-2 then surgery. I have a profile although I wonder with the new site if it's still there.
