Ostomy Memories of Skin Cancer

 
This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

I SUPPOSE I HAD IT COMING, having lived my life in Florida (the Sunshine State) with a fourteen-year sojourn in Utah. This week I had to have skin cancer excised from two places: arm and top of my bald head. I’ve always tried to wear a hat while outside in the sun, but there are going to be days that you miss, from simple sloth or ineptitude. So I had what’s called micrographic surgery under local anesthetic. They have a lab on premises so that they can test it to make sure that they got it all. Then they closed it up. Few things are as gawd-awful looking as stitches, now that I’m past the stage where it was bandaged and having to treat it myself a couple of times per day. It was when he was stitching up my head that I felt the most discomfort, as he was pulling my scalp so tight that I suspect my ears may have risen an inch on each side of my noggin. But I’m healing, although at the moment I look like I just did battle with a very hard inanimate object…and lost. It only hurts when I raise my eyebrows.


 

Sending you lots of good vides to spead up your healing. 🙏

Atta boy. 😁

 

I hope you heal quickly Henry.  Look on the bright side, maybe you got a free facelift when the doc was pulling your scalp so tight to put the stitches in!
