One year out

Post by Bella4444 » Wed Sep 19, 2018 4:44 pm

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is going great

So in two days it’s been one year since my diagnosis!
I must admit melanoma has gone from being at the forefront of my mind to something I think about every now then which is great.

Lately though and I’m assuming it’s because it’s coming up to the one year mark I find myself worrying all over again. The changes in regards to prognostic indicators such as no more mitosis being used and more focus on depth and ulceration has scared me, my pathology gave me peace of mind because I had no mitosis and now this has gone out the window.....apparently.

Of course coming up to summer here in Australia all the melanoma stories are circulating the news again and most are usually based off the people that have stage one and have spread.

Sorry I’m not sure what I’m getting at with this post I just needed to touch base I guess.

Yay!

I remember when you joined! Congratulations!

While it's been about a year and a half for me I still think about it a lot, but every day that goes by without it showing up is a blessing. There are others that know how you feel!

Very happy for you and can't wait to hear more good news in future!

Congrats on a year and a half!
Are you still on 3 monthly checks or 6 monthly now?
I was told I can go to 6 monthly now but I’m pretty sure I’m going to stick to every 3....even if my wallet hates me for it haha
