Keep up with Teddi Mellencamp’s treatment plan for her skin cancer

Teddi Mellencamp with her immunotherapy treatment

Teddi Mellencamp has shared an emotional update on her cancer struggle.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, Teddi Mellencamp, recently discussed her failed immunotherapy treatment.

“Just had a big old cry,” the 42-year-old told her Instagram followers on December 18 in an Instagram story. “Got the call from my doctor that the immunotherapy did not work, was not successful.”

The co-host of Two Ts in a Pod then considered her future possibilities.

“I can either do a big skin graph of my stomach or my arm but it’s a very long recovery,” she went on to say. “Or I can go in and get another wide excision surgery on Dec. 26 and they’ll have a plastic surgeon come to because it’s such a big area, and then just keep getting my checks every three months.”

Despite being obviously shocked by the news, the television personality finished her message on a good note. “So, that’s where we are,” she said. “Get your skin checked folks.”

Teddi Mellencamp began her immunotherapy treatment, which was administered as a cream to combat malignant cells, in September and lasted five weeks.

“Another update I didn’t want to give but in an effort to be fully transparent and help others,” she said in an Instagram post on Sept. 30, along with a treatment plan for immunotherapy. “Remain vigilant in having your skin checked, my friends.” We can defeat this.”

The Bravo alum originally revealed her stage 2 skin cancer diagnosis in October 2022, and she has continued to provide updates to raise awareness throughout her struggle.

“This has been such a wakeup call for me,” she said at the time on Instagram. “And I hope to all of you, to love and protect the skin you’re in.”
