 Good news for a change. My husband had his melanoma surgery and thyroid surgery at the same time last week. Both surgeries were a success! The lab report came back with no sign of any cancer in the thyroid nodule, and it appears that the plastic surgeon removed all the cancer on my husband's cheek. As for myself, I was able to manage the hospital stay with no ostomy accidents- a real feat because I left my drainable bags at home!!!
