This post is long overdue and won't even be the post I had in mind due to some time constraints with assignments due tomorrow but in short:
I had surgery which was extensive and painful and which I am still having the odd side-effect from but my scans show that I am clean! I am cancer-free! :) I have beaten stage 3 melanoma!
I will post the details of the op, the hospital stay (which has some very amusing characters in it) as well as my recovery this weekend.
