I’m starting to get used to this. Over the last two years of my life I’ve had several biopsies and a couple of them have been abnormal. My father’s history of Melanoma, combined with the amount of sun I saw playing in softball tournaments all summer long makes me an excellence candidate for skin cancer – plus I’m just about as fair skinned as snow white.
This morning I got the stitches out on the third removal – right behind my right ear. I’ve only been able to turn to the left for over a week now and I’m so excited to turn to the right again (watch Zoolander for the ambi-turner explanation).
Unfortunately my pale skin is also incredibly sensitive so I had an allergic reaction to my bandages. I have a great little rash now that itches like crazy.
The doctor said I should keep it covered for another week but because of the bad reaction I can smother it in the healing goo during the day and only cover it at night – to protect it from reopening and popping the stitches that are under the skin.
Did I mention that it itches – and that they back of my ear is covered in good…? Bad combination.
At least I’m done with stitches and can turn right again – March is already better than February.
