    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Immunotherapy): I have only had one round of Yervoy at this point so I don't have too much to say about the drug and/or the reactions at this time. I did not have enough melanoma in my body at this time to participate in a PD1 clinical trial. There is too much inflammation from the surgery to know how much cancer is in my hip area and I have a spot on my rib, which at this time is .8 mm. It has grown .2 mm since my scan in April.

      That's actually good news. I start PD1 Monday after four rounds of Yervoy. Hope it works better than the Yervoy.

    Procedure or Surgery: I had a complete hip replacement along with repair to my broken pelvis. The tumor was scraped out and the doc also froze the area. The surgery was on May 3. It is now June 27 and I am still healing. I have a 2 year old little girl. Due to hip limitations, my daily life has been affected tremendously and the care that I can give to my baby has been limited.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): Cancer spread from my arm, Stage IA, through my blood stream, to my hip, acetabulum and ischium. For first stage I had surgery. Margins were removed and sentinel node was negative.
