Hello! I come here often and read all of your posts, it really helps to ease some anxiety . Your strength is amazing! I had a CLND in my groin as well as pelvic nodes on 6/21 and went in today for post-op and results. My oncologist was very encouraging and said that only a microscopic amount (6mm) of melanoma was found in one groin node. He stated that in simplest terms that some of the cells were attempting to escape the node so is recommending some radiation therapy to the area. Anyone have any experience with this? How was it? Recurrence? I was very successful on BRAF/MEK as I had 2 previous nodes come back positive for Mel & the BRAF/MEK killed the cancer in those nodes. Any advice is welcome and appreciated . Prayers always
