Well a bit of an up and down day. First the CT showed the more concerning melanoma masses in my chest and neck are stable, so the Pembrolizumab is working. However, the large mass in my pectoral muscle is growing and so now my Oncologist is deciding whether surgery is an option, but due to the amount of invasion it will be a big op. Or Radiotherapy to try and shrink it, or finally Nivolumab added to the Pembro to try and keep it under control. So a stressful wait, thank goodness for books, as reading keeps me going. Currently reading Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng and No Way Out by Cara Hunter.

I am not a professional book reviewer, just an avid reader. I have a lot of ‘down’ time, due to my various treatments for Metatastic Malignant Melanoma (Stage 4). So I read. Books are my escape and relaxation and my reviews are my honest opinion. If it’s tripe, I’ll say so and alternately if it’s excellent I may gush a bit. Many books are a good read, but are a bit forgettable, others, however, touch your soul a little and stay with you bringing a little magic to life. I am 56 and I have stage 4 Malignant Melanoma and have been having various treatments and surgery over the past four years to help prolong my stay on this planet. Currently on Pembrolizumab..every three weeks....Good days and bad days and at times a lot of Scanxiety.... View all posts by lel2403
