This day’s skin cancer selfie brings about another one week milestone. One week ago today I was able to remove this glorious bandaging:
I had my husband remove it and remember asking him what it looked like. I didnt dare look in the mirror first. I was so nervous. So very nervous. Was it going to look horrible? Was it going to be everything that I imagined? When I finally did look I saw what’s on the right:
Pretty scary. A friend of mine says that it looks like a mugshot. Ha! I guess it does. Okay it does. I haven’t been wanting to smile for fear of stretching the stitches. So this is my non smiling face. Yes, pretty scary. A reminder that I need to smile more in the future!
The left is my current Skin Cancer Selfie: Day 10.
Side by side with one week ago to compare. It really is healing up quite nicely!
The bruising has subsided for the most part. I’m still using the antibiotic ointment 3 times a day. It’s supposed to help with the scarring. Even though I had an amazing plastic surgeon to fix the damage you should always remember to…
Protect your skin. Wear sunscreen. Do not tan. Get annual skin checks.
