YIKES! No fun at all! Would one of those scooter things help that people prop their bad foot on to get around when crutches and wheel chairs aren't practical?
It wasn't so bad.  For the first day or two I just had to figure out how to walk without lifting or bending my foot.  My solution was to walk backward and drag my foot.  It worked around the house but not so good outside.

VJ, The nose and forehead! Yikes! Shocked Did you have more removed from your forehead? When is your next appointment?

I went back just before Easter and it looks good around that scar, so he said I could wait 3 months or so and check it again.  He said if it came back it would be in the same area.  That spot is between my eyes just above the eyebrow.  The place that looks new is directly between the eyes at the top of my nose.  I seriously don't want more cutting on my face. Sad

I guess I am lucky that they are basal cell and not melanoma.

Had 3 more growths removed from the face and arm week before last, and today the report came back that 2 were cancer and one was pre-cancerous. Have to go back in and have more surrounding tissue removed now. All these years later, paying the price for all of the summers of my youth spent working in the fields with no shirt and no sunscreen (don't remember even hearing about sunscreen in the 1950's). 

Remember, when working your gardens to wear protective clothing and sunscreen. And, don't delay getting checked for any skin abnormalities you see developing.

My hubby has been there, done that. His followup appointment is tomorrow. No fun for either of you! Sad

You are right, CN, not fun at all!  Fortunately, though, it is not as troubling as the surgeries that were necessary to remove the internal organs that developed cancer years ago. Hopefully, there won't be any more of those experiences.

Which side of your body? I had 3 places treated this year. All on the left side. The doctors and nurses nod knowingly. Apparently our left side gets more sun exposure, the theory goes, thanks to the driver seat in our cars being on the left. If that's the case, at least for me, then it isn't about all the sunburns I got as a kid since most serious commuting didn't begin until the twenties.

Mine are also mostly on the left side but i don't really think it is from driving.  I was raised water skiing every day of every weekend when growing up.  Also every summer while I was in college I was a lifeguard and swimming instructor.  In high school I was on the swimming team every summer.  Lots of sun and no suntan lotion of any kind.  Well maybe when I was a lifeguard we used baby oil with iodine in the oil to help us tan.

OG, I'm sorry about having to go back for further removal. The sins of our youth coming home to roost.

Yikes to your prior abdominal surgery for cancer. Shocked

Mine have been in various locations, Mark, and not just the left side. There have been more on the right side of the face and right arm than the left, but not just on one side. One was in the middle of the back, right between the shoulder blades.

Early Detection & Treatment is the most important thing in dealing with cancer. I have been very fortunate that all of mine to date were been treatable by surgery, and surgery techniques have improved dramatically in recent years.  Just Get Checked Out!
