Have a nice ride.
Thanks everyone for the well wishes. Home and on the mend, foot up! It was done by a mohs Surgeon (specialist.) It took two surgeries, the first didn’t get quite all of the cancer cells, so back in again… results were re-examined afterwards and all was clear. No stitches used there because the skin is so tight. For it to be stitched, the doctor would have had to take a skin graft from another part of my body and put it on top. That in itself is yet another trauma to the body, so she said I'd be best off to let it heal on its own. We'll change the bandage daily, with an antibiotic ointment underneath Now as long as I behave I can be back on the bike in either 2 weeks or 4 weeks. I will have to check with the doctor again.. Anyway, thanks again everyone for the well wishes. I guess I’ll just be spending some extra quality time with my wife and two kitties for a while. :biggrin:
