As regular readers of my medical adventures know, I've got a small to medium cancerous tumor (malignant melanoma) in my right eye and had to wait until I'd lived in Texas 6 months before I could qualify for the financial assistance needed to get treated by MD Anderson Cancer Center for this condition.
Events have moved quickly since March 20th; all sorts of blood tests, MRI’s, ultrasounds and cat scans. Then, yesterday, I came in for a re-measurement, so they can order the plaque and a chat with the Doc who will do the job.
I learned that I have been scheduled for surgery, well actually, a pair 5 days apart.
I go in April 18th, for the insertion surgery, the removal surgery is the 23rd and a post-op follow-up is the 24th.
