Melonoma news

Hi Y'all.
Just a quickie update.
Today just as we were about to go off to our reserved 5* anniversary lunch for 55 years. We get a call from the dermo doc to visit asap. So an hour later we are in her surgery.

Apparently as the melanoma is cancerous we need to have a PET scan before surgery to check the spread. Our details have been sent to the cancer hospital at Caen and we now await the call or rendezvous to attend.
It's only after the scan we can undergo surgery and 2cm of flesh removed all round the scars on my leg.

So again it's a waiting game till the next appointment. Have cancelled the Portugal trip and notified our landlady of the problem and await her decisions about charges.

Ray.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Shitty luck Ray and at Christmas. Fingers crossed it all goes well for you. Sounds like the French healthcare service are on the ball so best of luck getting it sorted. Dont worry. Your FC pals will cheer you up. Actually scrap that, they will probably just abuse you. Maybe thats just me, I dunno.

Well

Actually Ray

Me and Albert are your best info

Over five years, countless metastasis is removed

Deep cuts , he’s had 7 or eight in his arm

All lymph nodes removed in that arm

Huge lymphedema,

Which is now reversing , his body has decided to reverse it , so now he spends ages under a scan to monitor new pathways for research as it doesn’t happen

Well now it does

His melonoma was so deep they weren't sure it was worth treating his prostate cancer

As he certainly wasn’t going to survive it

But he’s still here

And has just sorted out bowel cancer

So Ray

2cm of flesh around

It’s peanuts babe

Alberts has that 5 or six times repeated on his arm, and it works ok

You will be fine

What’s two cm between life and death

Chin up, best foot forward

Lots of love

Sandra

Thanks all ya guys.
Yes the French service has been very rapid so far and I'm feeling up beat. I can bear a hole in my leg and lots of appointments. It's only finding the various departments that are concerning me.??
I'm happy to be in their hands and the dermo doc is not only pretty but fills me with confidence.

You won’t have a hole Ray

Just a scar

Take your eyes off that pretty Dermo doc

Prue will make the hole in your leg feel like a scratch if you misbehave

Hi Ray, Really sorry to hear of your problem.
At least you are getting quick response and good care.

My wife had a Melanoma 15 years ago just before we moved here treated in UK, it was also on her leg.
The medics had to have two attempts to clear it and she ended up losing a bit more than 2 cm but they got all of it and after skin graft apart from the scar which we call her shark bite nothing to show for it.

Interestingly, here they still monitor her with a thorough total body examination, now every year but up until a couple of years ago it was every 6 months, whereas in the UK they were happy to monitor initially and then effectively just said OK your fixed now off you go.
