Hello everyone, I hope that you all welcome me, ive received Cure magazines now for about 6 months & just realized there is a blog/forum! so neat, I visit a few others as well, MRF {Melanoma.org & Inspire.. Anyways, in short, im Mike, 49yrs young and have been fighting my butt off to get rid of this Melanoma bug since I was diagnosed with it back in 2008, stage 3b, in my left leg just above the knee. Since then, ive had 6 different surgeries {all in left leg} 2nd surgery was to my groins Lymph nodes of course it tested positive which tells you it had traveled since my 1st one popped up above the knee.3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th surgery where all basiclly the same situation, find a tumor, take it out and move on. Full circle, Aug 2017 CT Scan revealed multiple nodules ranging from smaller millimeter in size to 1.4cm being the largest. Nov 2017 I started Keytruda, I did #7 infusions with 2 CT Scans & it just wasn't worth moving on with the med. I believe about May 2018, I began Yervoy & Opdivo and I have just completed my last & final round of Yervoy {given only 4 times} and I will continue with Opdivo till further notice, im scheduled for my first CT Scan since iv been on the combo on 9/17/19 so, fingers crossed! So, that's me in a nut shell, I look forward to reading your posts & meeting new folks with Melanoma & or Lung Cancer, and yes, my CT Guided Needle Biopsy confirmed my lungs tumors as Melanoma {now at stage 4} that has metastasized from my left leg..Either way, a tumor is a tumor right?, Take care guys, Mike...
