This winter has been a bitch. Snow still covers a lot of our yard. Normally, I would have been out by now fertilizing and getting ready for spring, but the vestiges of winter still surround us. Sigh. Sometimes I wonder why we live here. Anyway, the next few days are supposed to be somewhat more spring like. Whoopeedoo!
I wonder if my recent spate of skin cancers might be related to my MM therapy. The chemotherapy drug melphalin I took to kill all my bone marrow cells prior to my transplant has been linked to secondary cancers. In addition, the Revlimid I've been taking has also been associated with an increased risk of secondary cancers. Could my latest bout with skin cancer be caused at least in part by my MM therapy? Who knows? In any case, I will continue to be vigilant about any more of these. I have another appointment in late July with my dermatologist, Dr. Reohr. I plan to keep on top of this.
