      Vince, I saw your most recent post and pm'd you.  Not sure if you had the spinal surgery, but if you did, I might be able to offer advice/encouragement.  I had surgery to remove a 4cm tumor in my lumbar region 5 weeks ago.  Challenging rehab–but I've improved significantly.  Separately, since I haven't posted for a while–I'm not yet sure of the status of my CNS involvement.  I've been on BRAF-MEK for several weeks and am waiting on scan results.  I should know more this week.
