On April 11th, 2022 I went into the ER due to ongoing nausea that was increasing, at first the provider was going to send me home thinking it was acid reflux. I asked that a CT test be performed, the results showed a large mass on my right ovary and multiple masses on my liver. Next would come ultrasounds, and MRIs to take a closer look. On May 2nd I had a total hysterectomy performed and they sent the mass in for pathology, that came back as stage 4 melanoma. I had an appointment with my Dermatologist to see if he could find the source of the melanoma cancer, he did find one spot that they did a biopsy on and it did come back as melanoma, but he doesn’t believe it to be the source of the spreading, since it doesn’t go deep into the skin layers. A PET scan was completed and determined that the cancer is in my liver and two lymph nodes, with other lesions that need a closer look. We have more steps to complete and then a meeting with the melanoma oncologist that will determine my care plan.  Thank you for visiting my Caring Bridge!
