Did you know that your tear ducts have drainage tubes?

Monday, December 10, 2012

At my checkup today the doctor took off the "yucky" bandage. emoticon

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!!

Praying that you will completely heal and feel

eyes drain into the nose. Both of mine are
