Mole News

Another beautiful day here in Somerset today after the rain of yesterday, although we have some cloud at times it is dry today and I have got most of my washing dry.
As many of you know I had a mole removed in June and then the scar opened up and Vernon had to dress it every other day on holiday in Italy.
After a second opinion on the mole which was done at Southampton Hospital, it was decided that the mole just just beginning to be cancerous.
I went to see a plastic surgeon from Fenchary Hospital today who does have a surgery at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. I have to have the scar re-opened up and the skin around it and deeper in the scar removed. Hopefully they will not find any more cancer. This will be done at Fenchary in the next few weeks as a day patient. Fenchary is the other side of Bristol so at least I wont be kept in over night and can come home the same day. I will be unable to bend over and pick anything up for a month. The scar will be longer and sewn up with dissolvable stitches inside and out and will take a month to dissolve.
I am so fed up with hospital's that the news of more treatment was not good news, and I did not say anything before as we were not sure what was going to happen. They have given me the once over for lumps under the arms and groin, which I have to check regularly in the future.
He said it was a good job she took the whole mole out as I would be in a worse position than I am now.
One day I will be free of hospital's, I don't think there can be much more than can do to me now, at least this is will be over quite quickly.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy whatever you are doing.
Until we meet again in blog land take care
