Having another biopsy

I hope you have a lovely holiday and enjoy the time with your son.

Doing something different is a great way of keeping your mind off any upcoming procedures I've found. Unfortunately I had a phone call this morning to say that the surgeon isn't now available tomorrow and my biopsy has been put back a week

Oh what a bummer latchbrook so whats the new date? Its awful when you get all psyched up then get let down. Youre right about being away as a distraction and being with my family is never a dull moment we are touring scotland so won't be time to dwell.

It's now going to be next Wednesday instead of tomorrow. I know another week won't make much difference but it's still annoying.

Hi , I’m just commiserating with you that you have to wait another week, as you say it’s just annoying when you have got yourself in a mind set and then you have to reset again for another week. I wonder if that calls for another holiday ?!!

Hi everyone 

I had the lesion removed yesterday evening. The wound has been closed with dissolvable stitches which is great as I don't need to have them removed. 

Results should be back in 2-6 weeks although the nurse hoped it would be more likely to be the shorter end of that timescale. 

The plastic surgeon was a really friendly guy and chatted throughout my op. Turns out he specialises in burns so my minor op must have been a piece of cake for him! 

Having a couple of days of taking it easy to give the wound a chance to heal. Arm isn't even sore this morning so it's going well so far. 

Hope everyone is doing well
