I wish that we would find support and answers. Some doctors say that I am stade III and some others stade IV. I had 4 metastasics melanomas and I had them removed March, 8th. It was in the pelvic and abdomen region. But it all srarted in January 2009 with an operation on my leg for a melanoma. The follow up I had was only superficial checking for nodes. They were all saying everything is ok. I had no scan or PETscan follow up. Yes,I have the V600-BRAF gene.
Welcome to the site.. people here are wonderful for support. I have never experienced stage 3 or 4. I have had cancer though and its very scary. I hope you can find the information you need and people as well to discuss this. Prayers and well wishes from me and hope things get better for you.
