Well that was weird

A surgical success! And yes, I know, it was just some minor skin cancers so it can hardly be called "surgery". Let's think of it as a procedure. A procedure where they scraped away three spots about the size of quarters on my back.

And did it hurt? Not really. I was pretty numbed up. But it was weird.

Scrape your finger over your skin. Go ahead...I'll wait.

And what did you hear? Not much, huh?

Now what does it sound like when you scrape cancer cells? Imagine the sound of someone eating rice krispies. That's it. That loud crunching sound. A little weird to hear that coming from your back.

And to put the cherry on top the doctor cauterized the spots. A little disconcerting to smell that burning smell coming coming from your own body.

And yet, none of that hurt.

Now...not so much of a hurt...but it really, really, really stings. A lot. And it does hurt to lean back on the couch. But other than that...which is mostly just my whining...it is all over and I don't have to go back for six months for a follow up visit.

Thanks for your good wishes!

You deserve some pampering! And whining is okay!

Rice Krispies??? That is just bizarre. As for the whining, you're entitled to a day of whining for each spot. You still have two days to go.

Been there done that. Good for you having them taken care of. I have a 12" scar on my back from Melenoma. Not fun. Blonde, and blue eyed and love the sun. Sunscreen has become my close friend...
