  1. Just been diagnosed with  right orbital melanoma. I have an appointment today at 3.30 with Addenbrookes. Im terrified, just keeping positive
  • Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community

    How did your appointment at Addenbrookes go yesterday? Hopefully you might be feeling calmer now you've had chance to talk to your consultant and maybe find out what your treatment plan is.

    It would be great if you could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

  • That's great to hear that you're feeling a lot calmer now . It makes a real difference when you have a doctor/consultant who you feel confident in.
