Thank you both so much for your replies and sharing your stories, I’m so sorry that both of you had to go through what you did. It’s definitely been difficult physically and mentally. After the 2nd surgery I was labeled T3A thickness 2.4 malignant melanoma in depth, but they said I had clear margins afterwards. I’m still learning the terminology for everything. My doctor’s seem very confident for my rate of full recovery and no reoccurrence if I keep an eye on myself and with regular checkups of course. I’m very grateful for where I am. Just still having some trouble with emotions and the physical pains and tinges. Thank you for responding it’s nice to talk to someone about it, that’s been through the same or similar.
