    Hi, I have secondary stage 4 Melanoma. I was originally diagnosed in 2008 and cleared NED in 2012.
    In 2020 this returned to me as brain tumours of which I now have many but being treated by Immunotherapy which is working well.
    A few side effects one of which is T2 Diabetes caused by long term, continued steroid use. Also Pneumonitis and issues with my Adrenal gland which means that I will almost certainly be on steroids for the rest of my life.
    I am still here and life is great so no issues but I do need to understand and take seriously my T2D. This is all new to me so I am trying to soak up as much knowledge as possible as quickly as possible
