          Welcome to our forum. I encourage you to fill in some info on the profile page that you may wish to create for your girlfriend. This will help us to help you better.

          Unfortunately, not many here who are from the UK. However, there are a lot of knowledgeable people here in this forum. If you have any questions about melanoma please don't hesitate to ask.

                      Hi Natasha, So how's it going after the wide-local?

                      My girlfriend is now awaiting surgery for the removal of all lymph-nodes from her armpit on 13th April (not looking fwd to this one much!)..

                      did you have or were you offered a Sentinal Lymph Node biopsy? what was your Breslow depth?

                       

                      thanks for writing back…  πŸ™‚

                      Will.
