Healing and looking closer to normal

Stitches are out and steri-strips off. Feeling much better, no more pain pills, bruising deminished scaring looks like I will be able to tolerate it well.
Well here it is about 72+ hours after the surgery with the dressings off. I counted the stitches and came up with about 70-75. The spot that was on the nose was about the size of a pencil eraser....but once they started to cut away the cancer area, they found it was much more involved than just the small spot on the nose. The final hole was about the size of between a quarter and a half dollar so they had to excise a much larger area and create a flap, move tissue around to fill in the hole....thus the need for cutting and stitches all the way to the mouth.

Day 2 post surgery

Lots of pain today...not feeling well at all. Not sleeping well due to being told not to lie down due to the selling of the face and neck.

Post surgery day 1

This was about 24 hours after surgery...Eye is almost swollen shut and I look like I was in a fight with a lawnmower and lost. There was a lot of swelling to say the least.


It was discovered that I had Basal Cell Carcinoma on my nose. I had the surgery on the 8th of September and this is what I looked like right after the surgery
