I had my check up and two more spots removed, taking the normal 4 weeks until the results come in. Had a bit of post traumatic stress when the dermatologist called me at 4pm on Thursday saying they needed to see me at 7:30 the next day. The last time this happened was 4 years ago....

Fast forward, I arrived at 7:30am to know that it came back all clear and they had to adjust their schedule the following week. I let them know that while that was fine, perhaps they can think of the emotional state of patients and perhaps say this is the reason for making the switch rather then leading to presumptions. It brought me back to my initial diagnosis which was alot of fear.

Regardless, all clear 2 years after diagnosis. My 2 year removal anniversary is still in January. Time flies, and I wanted to keep my story running for newly diagnosed 1b patients such as myself. Next oncologist appt is in May!

Good news! Celebrate. Melanoma is one disease that can be scary even when it is low risk. I know from my own experience which I will celebrate 30 years from my .76 lesion. I always know how many years because I was pregnant with my son will turn 30 in June. It is something you never forget.

I'm past 2 years since my excision and it's almost time for my May appointment. Fingers crossed that everything comes back clear......and hopefully a good story for all newly diagnosed stage 1b early detection survivors.

My 2 year check up for my 1b diagnoses went well! Lymph nodes checked, no symptoms, site looks good, and all clear again. 2 out of 5 years complete!
