Went for the consult with the plastic surgeon today. Very dispassionate women who scared me more than she should have. Almost what is the point? Asked me which lump was causing me the most discomfort instead of simply setting dates for removal of all the lumps.
Procedure will be with a local anesthetic and we have asked for all three to be removed, but they will not use the wide excision method, so recovery should not be too bad. Now on the waiting list for surgery.
She went onto imply that more lumps or Melanoma metastasis were inevitable.
Finally, she was very surprised by how my melanoma had spread, through my blood rather than the usual route of the lymph system.
Next appointment is on Wednesday at Addenbrookes with the Oncologist.
My only symptoms at the moment are these bloody lumps and I feel tired and a little chesty.
I can not wait for the treatment to begin!
