Clinical trials? Thanks, but no thanks. So it’s on to surgery to remove a 1-cm nodule in my left thigh and a second operation to clean up the melanoma fragments that remain in my cheek after the punch biopsy. Next stop: OHSU on Thursday to match wits with the surgical oncologist who cut on me before. With luck, I should be all patched up within two or three weeks. Since I’m having plastic surgery, I was thinking about going for a new look. Peter Fonda, circa 1975, perhaps?
