Just had the first surgery.

Been at the dermatologist for 2 and a half hours, and just had the first surgery.

He said that it is not just a surface cancer, but has nodules that spread. I now have to sit for another hour and a half before I know whether they got it all, or I have to go back in for more.

This could come back in the same place, or other parts of the face.

He did offer me the alternative, 5 weeks of radiation, 5 times a week. I declined that.

My top lip, and part of my mouth is numb, so I really can’t talk properly, or drink. It dribbles out.

Will write more when I get home.
