Off-Topic Forum

The MPIP Off-Topic Forum is a community bulletin board that provides the melanoma community with a safe space to share experiences and to give and find support from others who can relate to having or caring for someone with a melanoma diagnosis. Please note: if you have an urgent question about melanoma to ask the community, visit the main MPIP Forum.

MPIP is the oldest and largest community of people affected by melanoma hosted through the Melanoma Research Foundation. It is designed to provide support and information to caregivers, patients, family and friends. Once you have been touched by melanoma—either as a patient or as a family member or friend of a patient—you become part of a community. It is not a community anyone joins willingly. But if you must be part of this group, you will find no better place to find the tools you need in your journey with this cancer, and the friends who can make that journey more bearable.

The information on the bulletin board is open and accessible to everyone. To add a new topic or to post a reply, you must be a registered user. Please note that you will be able to post both topics and replies anonymously even though you are logged in. All posts must abide by MRF posting policies.

Is anyone else out there?  or where did we all go?  I am going to at least  try to see how this all goes.  Afore I pass zee judgement.  Yesterday I went to the nuerologist....I confessed (like to a Saint)  and mentioned I had done a face plant onto our deck mid june and had a black eye and protruding eyebrow bone thing, but did not seek medical aid.  (I know I know)  way too embarassed. but with a shunt I should have known better.  He scheduled me for a CT scan (takes a long time remember?)  well  last night the hobbithall phoned, and I am going in TODAY at 4:30 for said scan of brain  (shunt and checking for subdural heomatoma or some such nonsense!  I promised from now on I would be a good Bonnie Lea.  HMMMM  I also have an appt to see my fav PS regarding the horrific scarring from the boobectomies and talk about possible what to do about the keloid that are bigger than your Mount McKinley!


what a busy week since coming home from my camp-a-thon.

I know it has been long overdue for me to move on. But I will sooooo miss the many of you I've befriended over the years. I guess I will just have to wonder about you all......

So sad....
