Something I have put off since last year. The ‘deep skin cancer’ has been ‘cut out’ I think. I say ‘I think’, because all my friends who have had this done say their doctor cuts some out and has a biopsy done. And then according to the results cuts more or sews it up. This doctor must be sure, because he closed with stitches and said I will see you in 10 days to report and remove the stiches.
This scar will be good. It is gonna look like I lost a knife fight. Bragging rights with the old people. LOL
Now I have a few questions in my mind. At the top of the list is, “Did he use a scalpel or pliers?” Nothing hurt, but I could feel him pulling (like pulled pork). He doesn’t have a good sense of humor or I would have offered him my pocket knife. But honestly it did feel like he was cutting with a dull knife and pulling with pliers. LOL As I said it never hurt, I could just feel the tugging.
He cut without removing my Cochlear devices.
I truly do not plan on making this a habit. I have learned some things while ‘waiting’ on this surgery. A couple friends actually have a full body search once a year. Searching for things that appear to be ‘skin cancer’ or what ‘might’ turn into a skin cancer. Then they schedule times to ‘remove’ the culprits.
I am not so stubborn as to ignore my health. I will have something taken care of that ‘worries’ me, however I do not plan to look for things to fix that as far as I can tell are not broken. I keep saying I am 80. I do want to live to 100+ if my health is good.
Unrelated, but something I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday. Taryterre (http://taryterre.blogspot.com/2019/04/kindness-of-strangers.html) She hasn’t posted as much as she has in the past, but this entry was absolutely GOOD, possibly a miracle. YES, there are good people in this world.
Then there is https://thenanadiana.blogspot.com/2019/04/bringing-almost-dead-geranium-back-to.html
Read it at your own pearl if you do not believe in miracles. I did get my feeling hurt, but I will get over it. ;-)
PS: Stormy showed up I fed but did not lot of petting. I 'skeered' myownself about infections.
The Dr. said do not cover the incision area, just use Vaseline on it.
