Thank you for your response. This forum has been so helpful to me in that I am now not alone! I appreciate the feedback on Interferon from everyone. I have all but reached the decision to do exactly what you have decided to do. I have a weekend planned with friends that will not include much cancer talk and I am looking forward to that. After the weekend I will contact my doctor and advise him of my decision. As you and Catherine have said, staying on top of all the check ups and watching my body is a positive and proactive plan.
I certainly hope and pray that your plan reaches the desired result as does mine.
Thank you very much for the responses. The additional numbers are Braf positive and Breslow measurement approx. 1.2 mm thickness. Any additional thoughts about Interferon or not? Also, I am in a leg compression garment right now and have a final appointment with my physical therapist today to make certain everything is working well.
