My Experience With Melanoma-in-situ and Skin Graft
Hi, just wanted to say many thanks for sharing your experience with us on your blog, it prepared me for my own opp, which I had yesterday. Just like you I have had a pigmented mark for over 5years growing very slowly and it was my opticianWho referred me to my doctor to get it checked out, I have to wait for my results but opp went ok and just very sore at the moment. Just noticed your recent picture you posted today and your face looks amazing.
Thank you very much. I appreciate your taking the time to leave such a nice comment. I'm always happy to hear this blog has been helpful to someone. In time yours will look much better too. I wish you well as you heal.
Many thanks for your reply, and wish you well in your recovery for the future.
Hi,I wrote on the blog asking what you look like now, before i found the recent photos! I'm so encouraged now, THANK YOU. You look fabulous! I thought you looked good when it was still obvious. I feel much better now. Mine looks like your earlier photos and I've been pretty depressed, struggling to stay positive. I am sure this will help anyone who finds your blog. I wish I had looked earlier, only found it last night.I should be so lucky. Good for you!
Thanks very much. Your skin is healing right this minute and it will get easier to look at each week.
Thank you for your blog. I have done nothing but cry since I got home yesterday having the yellow bandage cut off my face and seeing the monstrosity that's underneath. Now I feel a little more hopeful having read your journey. It's a long and difficult process though isn't it, right now it feels like it's never going to end and I will never leave the house again.
I felt just like you, and it was a long healing process. The monstrosity won't always be so monstrous. Gets much better with the passage of time. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
Me again, from June 20th! After I sent you a message I continued to cry for 2 weeks. I never thought it would end. But it did, slowly but surely. Six months on, things aren't so monstrous anymore. Things aren't brilliant either, but they improve week by week. I'm adapting. I just wanted to say thank you again for your blog. When I was at my absolute lowest, you gave me hope. In fact, you inspired me, and I'd like to share my story in the future as I kept a personal journal of events and pictures. I looked back on them last night and it was grim reading, and I'd forgotten what i dark place I'd been in, but as I read back as time has evolved, I can see what processes I went through and that I needed to go through them to emerge on the other side. So, thank you once again, from the bottom of my heart, for keeping me going when I thought the world had stopped. xx
Thank you for updating me. I'm very glad to hear how much progress you've made. It is extremely gratifying to know my blog was helpful to you. Indeed things improve as we figure out how to adapt. Somehow we just get through it. You've made my day, thank you!
