I just got back from my Pet scan. Not so good news. I went from stage IIIC to stage IV. The scans showed the mel has spread to my spine. That does not sound like a good thing. I have previously tested positive for the B-RAF mutation so my Oncologist is signing me up for the BRAF trial. Hopefully that will start in a few weeks and will help shrink this beast. Gee, I was just starting to feel better after completing my radiation treatment on 8/31.
Any thoughts and prayers would be welcome at this time. Add another stage IV warrior to the list. Hoped I would not join that list, but oh well, what can you do. Mel is going to do what it wants, but I am working to kick his butt as best i can. Time for a little more crying before I get on with my life.
