    Grateful that my melanoma was only surface and had not run deep. Nice 4" scar on my head that I need to come up with a great story...

    Took a while for me to recover and I was sooooo tired. My excision was on my backside so trying to move was difficult.

    The tumor was about the size of a grapefruit in my left though. Removed with no signs of melanoma afterwards.
