    Have to have a follow up procedure where they will cut a little deeper and wider.
    Me, too. Heard from my primary doc today. Off to the dermatologist at the end of the month. Two lesions, on my neck and shoulder.

    As you can image the spot is very sore.

    I'm so sorry this is happening to the two of you. Fair-skinned Caucasions seem to be at the greatest risk.

    ZG
    , would it be possible for you to move your dermatologist appointment to earlier this month?

    Also, did either of your docs say if it was "Bowen's Disease"?

    UPDATE

    Before surgery I have an appointment with a Retinalogist, issue being degree of nearsightedness & diabetic.
    Have surgery scheduled in June - one week apart again the the resulting difference being degree of nearsightedness.

    Wisdom teeth, chronic knee pain since I was 12, and a bad attitude.

    Hello, is this the kvetch thread?

    My right arm is killing me, and I can't even explain where the pain is. It started in April when I was pulling my wheeled luggage from place to place (in some cases, across cobblestones) during our vacation. It doesn't help that I am a right-handed mouse user, because I can't avoid using my right arm. I feel like someone is pulling my bones apart.

    Jammed my thumb working on the fence yesterday. Got several mosquito bites that itch badly. Getting old and cranky.
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    Apparently my family wants me to visit a dermatologist for one of these. Something on my back that I have noticed looks a little odd...what's that scrape procedure like?

    Other than that, I've had some sort of cold for like a week, and my dog had diarrhea last night, so there's that.

    My dermatologist took a biopsy, sent to the lab, called to tell me what it was & scheduled the procedure.
    The procedure was done in less than a hour; several local shots around the spot, several horizontal slices and a bit beyond the margins.
    Wound was left open to heal from inside out, dressed with petroleum jelly and covered with just a big band aid.
    forgot how many days I had to keep it dressed this way but changed twice a day.

    7 months later, spot is less than dime size and pale pink.

    Is that TMI ?

    My left knee hurts. I have developed arthritis in it due to a long ago injury and eventual surgery. Some days are better than others.

    My back is peeling due a sunburn that was so bad that it seems to have left behind permanent damage.

    Also I stubbed my toe on a screw sticking up out of a pier, and I lost a big chunk of it.

    Found out that I have a couple of low grade back problems.

    The left side of my mouth is still numb. I had a temporary crown installed this afternoon. Damn it, I'm still eating leftover homemade pizza tonight.

    I did that Monday. I cracked a molar last week and they worked me in for the temp crown. Jaw was been sore for a couple days. Ugh!

    There's not much to trump dental pain in the 'persistent with occasional sharp stabs' category.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Its all made better with some ice cold water or a nice hot cup of tea.

    I have a cold It's bad enough that I haven't slept well for two nights, even though I took nighttime OTC meds. Of course, being overly snotty and sleepy at work is sooo much fun

    At least I haven't taken the nighttime meds during the day, like ursus, but maybe this weekend I'll sleep it off . . .

    Getting dressed this morning, I pulled a muscle in my lower back. Painful enough to leave work a couple hours early. It's still pretty painful. Sleep should be interesting tonight.

    Acute bronchitis. Just about every winter, lasts for months. This year has been the worst. Honestly, I can't even remember when this year's bout started. Was it around Thanksgiving? Christmas? I had it for a month or so and was almost well, then I got the flu and now it has been at least another month. Rarely do I get a good night's sleep because the coughing is worse when I lie down. Keep going to the doctor but I don't get better. Ever.

    Now, I either want to get better or just die, just so long as it stops.

    I tore a muscle in my lower back last summer. You want to feel like an old person pretty quick, that will do it for you.

    Day 2 of the terrible headache...today I have had no caffeine or other stimulants. I am headed to the clinic to see if anything can be done. At this point I do not feel sick but left early yesterday in incredible pain. Even sleep could not improve it. The pain is dull and persistent for now.

    Try Mucinex or the big box equivalent. I had a cough for years, and that finally made it stop. HTH

    Pulled mine Sunday chopping wood. Still hurts sitting here, but it's getting better. And yes, I feel like an old man. Now get off my lawn!
