Thoughts on possible recurrence

Forums General Melanoma Community Thoughts on possible recurrence

  • Post
      Hi guys. Have had a headache for more than a week (same side of head as previous brain mets) and am going in for an MRI tomorrow.  As soon as I got the appointment, and follow up appointment with radiation oncologist same day, I stopped feeling so anxious. I’m coming to recognize the thin line between thinking every little twinge is recurrence, and neglecting listening to the body. So grateful for good, responsive health care. And that the rock star docs continue to work on new and better options for treatment.
