If you really knew me….you would know that I always do what I say I’m going to do, I can adapt to any situation, I don’t like excuses, I’m strong minded, goal driven, always looking out for my friends/family, straight shooter, I have never met a stranger, would rather love you than hate you and I will always be here when you need me. ♥
I am not a simple girl nor am I an overly complicated one. I am just a girl who loves deeply & openly when you can make it past my guarded heart. ♥
Waiting to find out whether or not I have 1 or 2 possible Melanoma’s is absolutely maddening!! I have been gorging out on brownies, cookies, ice cream, pizza, and Mt. Dew without doing any of my workouts as a way to calm my nerves.
Here is what I’m looking at in terms of my 2 returning dysplastic moles. They will either be returning dysplatic moles because the 1st shave biopsy did not get all the cells even though the biopsy report read free & clear. I am praying that this is the case!! Or…I am looking at Melanoma!! If it is Melanoma, I am hoping that it will be either In-Situ or 1A. Anything after 1A will require treatments of chemo, radiation, or high doses or Interferon.
Now, there is a possibility that I could get a false-positive Melanoma because of the 1st shave biopsy distorting the 2nd biopsy. But since they have my 1st shave biopsy, they will have a more precise determination.
I should find out this coming week what the results are. Pray that I am healthy and well.
A couple weeks ago while doing my monthly mole check, Bruce found a mole that was removed back in December of 2009 that had grown back. I went through my paperwork and found that is was one of the 9 mildly dysplatic nevus. These moles are the precursor to Melanoma.
So since I had my next mole mapping on March 7th, we figured we would just watch it and if it grew bigger before my mole mapping I would call Dr. Nash’s office and be seen. Well, then Saturday night Bruce noticed yet another mole that was removed had grown back. This one too was a mildly dysplatic nevus. The mole that grew back is definitely larger in size with pigment loss in the center…not a good sign.
I called the doctor this morning and was transferred to the nurse’s triage department because the scheduling department did not see an opening for several weeks. The scheduling nurse did say that most likely I will have to have surgery on both moles to make sure we remove all the bad cells. Dr. Nash’s nurse called me back within an hour and had me scheduled for 9:30 am on January 18th, 2011 in the Powell location to be seen. I am not sure if I will be having the moles removed tomorrow or if she will be just assessing them and then scheduling the surgery. Either way, they have to come off and biopsied again.
