My nose is still healing & still covered by Vaseline & bandage. It looks better than it did at first, thankfully, & the surgeon said perhaps sanding it will help the raised area. He put something in to help the swelling. I would rather have a bump there than a depression, it would look a bit more normal. I think that keeping a surgical site covered & moist is the the best way to keep scarring at a minimum.
Has anyone tried those ointments that are supposed to help eliminate scars?
Thu, Jan 16 8:27am · I've had 3 cancers: Thyroid cancer, Lung Cancer and Breast Cancer in Cancer
I've also had multiple cancers, and not related to each other. Melanoma. Angiosarcoma, and a GIST. Also, and within a short time span, a large number of pre-cancer tumors which were surgically removed. That was a few years ago. Presently, I am having numerous skin cancers.
My doctors were not at all amazed or surprised, or even worried! But then, I had the bad luck of going to a very large teaching hospital where patient care was secondary and quite poor. Nevertheless, I managed to recover.
I do have a friend who is a cancer researcher in a cancer research facility; when I told him my history, he was sure it was no doubt a gene which gave me the pre-disposition for multiple cancers. He is interesting in testing, which is a lot more than my former doctors!
I am now recovering from Moh's surgery several weeks ago on my nose for Basal Cell Cancer. It was a a sore that would not heal. The surgery was quite large and deep, and I will probably have to have a skin graft or plastic surgery of some sort on it as it is VERY disfiguring. I feel totally discouraged and maimed.
This is the 3rd Moh's on my face. I had another on my leg and major surgery for a huge Melanoma on my arm many years ago.
I also have had several sarcomas and other serious cancers. Obviously there is a bad cancer gene in my DNA!
Thanks for your concern.
Dec 17, 2019 · Are TENS units any help for chronic pain and/or PNE? in Chronic Pain
I have one & formerly used it for chronic back pain. I find it is more of an annoyance than a help.
But, my pain is in a joint, rather than a muscle though.
Now, Tens units are available in drug stores at a reasonable price, they used to be $$$!
Hi– No, don't think you are rude, and no, I don't live in the English Channel!
But I still don't know about this OZ person, he does sound a bit like someone on the Jerry Springer Show. That type character and the circus going on in Washington is what I meant by rudeness & vulgarity in our country.
I still an confused about my bowel behavior's oddity, but I guess that will remain as one of life's mysteries.
Sorry, but with all the rudeness and vulgarity that is presently going on in our country today, I just wanted to be "correct" in my post!
I simply was giving a heads up to possible earmarks or warnings of oncoming attacks.
Have no idea what or whom Dr. Oz might be, but assure you he/it is not a denizen of the deep!
