On Thursday, February 28th, 2019 I was called by the dermatologist and told to make an immediate appointment with a surgeon. On Tuesday, March 5th, I was in the surgical theater getting melanoma on my leg cut out and my groin lymph node removed.
I started post-op treatment in mid-June for biologic treatment. I have been hospitalized twice for complications with the treatment. I had an infection in my leg that was spreading, and a blood clot was found later during examination. Two days post-hospital release I had fevers that were spiking over 104 degrees, I was admitted back into the hospital and had to stay another week while tests and all my doctors were able to rule out any future infection.
