It has been a long time since I was on this site. WhenI was first diagnosed in May 2009, I was a daily visitor and received so much support here. I was diagnosed stage 3, no known primary,two positive lymph nodes, wide excision done and 10 months of Leukine. I was followed closley with scans for five years and last month a nodule appeared close to where others were (left forearm) and was positive for melanoma. Had a wide excision today and meeting with oncologist at MSK tomorrow to discuss adjuvent treatment with PD1. Surgeon told me I am eligible for this treatment but not sure if side effects warrant the use as I was NED for nine years and have one positive nodule, PET scan and CT of lung both negative. Any information or thought would be much appreciated as I cannot decide wheich way to go. I read so many negatic side effects but don't want to advance to stage 4 and wish I had done somthing to prevent it.
