Biopsy results and a new plan….

First the good news, the biopsy results came back and my mole was benign.  Happy dance!!

Now for the new plan.  The decision has been made that I will go back in to surgery.  I finish chemo in 7 weeks, then they give my body 3 weeks to recuperate and then back in to surgery to remove deep muscle and tissue in an attempt to get clean margins.  I am comfortable with the new plan, a little surprised but still comfortable.  I am pleased they are being aggressive.  I might not need radiation.  I guess it depends on what they find when they start carving me up like a Thanksgiving turkey – I call dibs on the wishbone!
