I’m glad to hear that you are progressing in the right direction!
Just a thought…my husband had basil cell and dysplastic skin lesions (many of the latter) that were removed, surgically. I wonder if skin lesions are related to MDS?
We are all praying for a rapid, complete recovery.

Hang in there, pal. This MDS/AML stuff is bad enough without having other cancers. We appreciate your expertise and advise on this forum so get well soon. Many prayers for you.

The skin lesions I had were a result of sun damage. Both docs feel there was no connection with my MDS—but stranger things had happened. Don’t thing either would say catagorically no.November 14, 2007 at 10:29 pm #19697maueenhParticipant
I’m glad to hear you are feeling better and at home with your family.

Now that you mention it, my husband spent many years doing field work in the desert and other sunny places. The sun exposure seems the more likely connection. My cousin’s only daughter died of melanoma…unfortunately, also a sun worshiper.It’s great hearing from you.
All the best, feel well, betyNovember 15, 2007 at 10:34 am #19699helenrMember
I am glad you are feeling brighter. I wish you strength in the weeks ahead. We need you to be strong and well. Best wishes, HelenNovember 20, 2007 at 12:33 am #19700fotisParticipant
i was kind of panicked, reading the first post, but after reading it all, i am glad you are doing better. Hope to get well soon!November 20, 2007 at 1:49 am #19701JanePMember
I hope things are starting to turn around for you. You are certainly in my prayers. Get rest and watch those games and get ready for some turkey on Thursday.

I hope things improve for you soon and you are well by Xmas.
Like Eve and Liz I also look at your entries for good advice, some times I think you know more about MDS then my Haematologiest. You can sure explain it better in laymans terms

sorry to hear about your hospital stay but glad to hear you’re back home & feeling better. I went through about 3 carcinomas all around my nose. had Mos surgery to remove them, the 1st one done about 5 years ago with no continuing issues. like you state, damage was done in the teen age years when you went out in the sun with no protective screening. It shouldn’t have any affect on your mds.December 3, 2007 at 5:40 am #19704krishananthMember
Sorry abt your hospitalization… really glad to know that your are back..Wishing you a speedy recovery and have a great time.

Going back in the hospital 4/8/08 for more surgery. Seems the cancer has spread from the right side to the left side of my neck. This surgery will not be as severe as the last. 1 large tumor and 7 lymph nodes/
After the neck is resolved have a small tumor in each lung to resolve.
At this stage I think the 11 years of MDS has been a littlt bit easier to deal with than the last 6 months dealing with cancer surgery/radiation and chemo—-at least in my case. I recall suggesting MDS patients watch their health aside from MDS. This started from too much sun exposure back in the 1940s and 1950s. Just a small squmaous cell carcenoma that spread very rapidly.
Hope to be back on The Forum from the hospital when they let me out of bed.April 8, 2008 at 9:13 am #19706eveMember
hope all goes well with your surgery and recovery
i know that everyone on the forum will be praying for your quick return – your information has helped so many of us through this bitter battle with mds
