Title: Re: Mole Alert! ( skin health)

Hi Cactus. Well I'm glad it was 'nothing' for you but for me it was rather more then that.
The mole on my leg was surgically removed in an operating theatre. First I was injected with local anasthetic then I has a one inch incision which removed a portion of tissue either side of the mole and beneath the mole. I was given about 7 stitches. Because the shin of the leg has tight skin I could not walk on it for a week. It took another week to get back to normal. The mole was checked and was non cancerous. The one on the sole of my foot was even more difficult and I couldn't walk at all for 3 days and 2 week to get back to normal! It was also non cancerous.
I appreciate that treatments differ and it is diffferent for everyone but for me it was quite a difficult time as I couldn't work for a few weeks, couldn't drive and it was hard to llok after the kids! Thankfully they were non cancerous. If they had been I would have had to endure more tissue being removed! Whatever the case at least I have peace of mind and I certainly wouldn't put off treatment.
