Was NED for 9 years, stage 3C unknown primary. Had node removed near original 2 and was melanoma. Did 6 months opdivo but stopped due to side effects. 3 years later had another node removed, same arm, near the elbow. Wide excision not clean margin. Surgeon wants to do further excision under anesthesia. Waiting to hear when to get PET scan. Last one may 2022 NED along with MRI brain. Scared out of my mind as recurrences came quicker even with treatment. Anyone have any experience like this? Thanks
