Today I had the basal cell carcinoma removed - a mild form of skin cancer. It was on my left temple, and so the numbing medication prior to the surgery affected my eyebrow. I was amused that I could now do a Spock impersonation. Here it is for YOUR amusement. www.youtube.com/watch?v=
After getting stutched up I was given instructions for wound care. "No bending/heavy lifting for one week." Okay...I guess I won't be doing the wieghts...But the verbal instructions were "Don't do any exercise." I asked, "What about my stationary bike???" I was answered, "No, we don't want anything to get your blood pressure up that could make the wound bleed." NOOOOooooo!
A whole week! I hope the weather is mild enough that the sidewalks remain clear so I can at least walk to work. I am looking at a probable weight gain. Poop.
