My granddaughter (11 weeks) has to have a possible melanoma removed from her leg. Has anyone else every had this situation? How about anesthesia for an 11 week old infant.

Hi happyhobo4 -

I see that you posted a couple of weeks ago and wanted to see if your granddaughter has had the procedure.

Be sure to check back in to let us know how all are doing.

Sharing your experience here will really help out others since it is difficult to find much info about this on the web.
