Possibly Melanoma Cancer On October 28, 2013, I went to my regularly scheduled eye doctor appointment. While doing an examination on my eyes, she asked me about a lesion which was growing right in the vision line of my lower eye lid. She asked me how long it had been there. I told her for over a year and that it had started growing larger within the last several months. She told me she did not write it down and did not remember it being there the last time we were together. I told her I was glad she asked about it, because I was concerned about its growth and the possibility of being cancerous. She called in a surgeon to look at it and they talked about removal. She told the surgeon she wanted it removed sooner than later. They scheduled me for the next week on November 6, 2013. The surgeon and another doctor removed the lesion from my eye and stitched it up. I will spare you the details of a needle in such a delicate place or the fact that while they are removing it I had to keep eye open for them. I will not tell you how I felt when they were discussing that the scalpel was too big for this delicate procedure. Everything went good, except when she hit a bundle of nerves that didn't get numbed by injection, when the doctor started stitching the wound. I had to return the next week for the stitches to be removed and the pathology report on the lesion itself. When I got called back, it was my eye doctor who came and got me. We talked as she examined the wound and then she told me that the pathology report said ‘Incomplete.’ She then told me she did not know why that was, but she would find out. At this time the surgeon who did the removal, came in to remove the stitches. He again had the wrong size scalpel and was telling me to be still he wouldn’t cut my eye; however it was very difficult to get into such a small area with this scalpel. I immediately volunteered to wait until he had the right tool for the job. One of the surgical assistants came in with the right scalpel and helped with the removal of the stitches. I will tell you it almost hurt as bad having the stitches removed as it did having them put in. I thanked God and the doctors for their efforts and skill. Shortly after the stitches were removed, my eye doctor came back with the news about my pathology report. She told me that the doctor in charge of the lab said she did not think it was melanoma cancer; however she found suspicious cells and needed to do more slides to determine whether or not the lesion is melanoma. She told my doctor that she was not comfortable saying No, it is not. She told my doctor they would know more this next week and for me to call her on Wednesday, November 20th, to see what the results are. The reason for her having this lesion removed was because of my history with melanoma. I know God is in charge and anything that happens will be just another part of His plan in my life. I am so thankful to the fine medical care I have received from the VA Medical. They too are a part of God’s plan and have been given special gifts of saving lives’. All of the support staff and everyone who is a part of this great medical team, I wish to tell personally; Thank You’ll and God bless you!!!
