Yep. Open wounds take a lot longer. But I have noticed in just three weeks the wound is level now, versus a little crater after the slice was taken out. So the new skin is forming.

Very good news from the surgeon this morning. Wound is 1/3 healed and appears I only have one more month of bandage/compression stocking instead of two or more. Yay! Do not need to go back.

Sorry to hear about your relative Deb. Hope that you continue to heal quickly.
My Mom had several bouts with Melonoma but made it through them. My Dad just had some taken off the top of his head looks kinda like flat fishers pic but on the top of his head.

Glad you are on the way to 100% heal! Goes to show you just how important intact skin is to your overall health. Must take good care of it!

Thanks. Your mother is very lucky she made it through. Early detection and treatment are literally a life saver.

Deb, good to hear things are going good. I've been lucky and have only had to have one spot removed from my chest, and did the Vasoline treatment. No big deal since I spent a good part of my youth hanging out at the beach.
