I haven't been on here for about 6 months or so. However, I had melanoma on my left leg which spread to one lymph node, and terrible problems with seromas after surgery. On Dec 9th was my one year mark and the PET/ct scan came back clear. Yeah, now for follow ups.

Unfortunately, I have just been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer today and so will be dealing with that for some time. 

I haven't read recent posts but I wish everyone well.

So glad that melanoma is staying away. Just wish breast cancer didn't decide to join in! Sending hugs and good thoughts your way.

I am so sorry to hear about your additional diagnosis.  I had breast cancer first then melanoma (stage 3-ish unknown primary) the following year.  That was in 2005 and treatments for both cancers have improved significantly since that time. Wishing you the best of luck in your upcoming treatments and also reminding you that people do live through this and get to live with our good friend NED

I'm so sorry to hear of the new diagnosis. Thinking of you and hope that you're done with melanoma for good so that you can fully focus on overcoming breast cancern. ~ Carol
