Well, the good news and the bad news, a lymph node came back positive.
“My lymph node results should be back in today!” I told the nurse as she changed my dressings. To say I was optimistic was an understatement. I was going to learn from my experience, but I was eager to get back to real life.
I received the phone call on a Friday evening about 5 weeks after the biopsy. November 2013. You have melanoma.
