At my checkup today the doctor took off the "yucky" bandage.
Now I can see my skin graft (it is larger than I thought) & it is still all bruised as is part of my face & nose. He took the stitches out of my shoulder (where he got the skin to graft). But all in all, it does look better.
I did not know that our tear ducts have drains. My skin cancer went all the way to the tear duct drain & because he cut it out too, he had to reconstruct it & put in a stent. It has a small
"string like" piece (the stent) coming out of it to keep it open & he said that he till probably leave this stent in for 3 months to be sure it is healed correctly.
Thankful he was able to get all the skin cancer!!
