Just Pamela again! Richard says I need to update the blog even though I would rather wait until I have accurate information. BUT I am submitting to my husband so here goes. I spoke with Dr. Brader’s nurse (he is in surgery) who said they discussed many options and she didn’t know which one was decided. What I do know is that I need a PET scan to see if it has metastasized elsewhere in the body, and that I will be referred to U of M’s melanoma clinic. There are some tests which were suppose to be run on the lymph nodes. The nurse said the tests had been requested but she did not have the results. She did not know if Dr. Brader would call me with the results or if he would go over them at my next visit (November 6th). The tests were to see if this cancer was caused by one of two different mutant genes as that would direct treatment options. I have requested all my reports so I can be more knowledgeable. I have finally been able to research vulvar melanoma and found out today that it affects 1 in 1 million women, so thought it was an appropriate title for this post. I have to go now, I need to go by a lottery ticket with those odds! Love all of you, Just Pamela
