I am now at day 12 post melanoma removal by wide excision with a skin graft. The graft has 70% taken which I am told is good. The original hole in my arm was large enough to sit an egg in and it is now down to a soup spoon in depth. I have done a photo journal to compare each dressing change. My family have finally discovered washing ironing and cooking out of necessity. My pathology says all cancerous cells have been removed and I seriously think that advertising for skin cancers is very blasé and nowhere near reality. Thank you for the advice regarding a head cold before my operation. It was excellent advice.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
