If it makes you feel better ill trade a mole for the molar some dentist ripped from my face today.


Naw, I feel better already, thank you very much! Drill a hole in it, wear it around your neck or something.

SCseagoat! No worries! I had MOHS surgery on a Basal Cell Cancer on my head last winter.

Ricky D describes it perfectly, except the surgery staff & I had some laughs along the way, and the room was warm!

The only thing left to share is the photo.

This October, in the checkup, it was a problem to find the scar.

Enjoy the experience!

Thanks all! All over, all done. First scrape was all they needed. The stitching was the worst, only 4 of them, but the doc really pulled up on them. I suspect I have an eyelid lift now. Shucks that it's only on one side. The doctor looked like he was 15 years old....feaky. Yet his bio talked about all the years of experience and board certifications etc. etc. Dougie Howser, I suspect.
Icing it now to keep swelling down.

Sheeeet Jay, I knew I was going about it the wrong way. Ben and Jerry's it is. Its gonna be a shiner fersure. And I'm supposed to meet Sullly at PG/SV tomorrow night. If only there were some dramatic climbing or biking story to account for a big F'ing black eye.


Missing all you guys in Moab, but it's been lovely here in the Cruz.

Thanks BD. All went well, but have a blazing headache tonight as the topical anesthesia has worn off. Self medicating with a cold beer, drink it, hold it against the site. All works well! Suspect it's getting purdy dang cold up there in Wyoming. Still need to do the City of Rocks some time.

Good tidings, Susan.
My dermatologist here also looks like a kid. Maybe the same guy?

Thanks, Scuff. . Entering the stingy stitches phase as the wound dries and pulls a bit. Just want to itch it. Also the shiner has now completely orbited the socket. Cute.

Maybe the same dermo, actually most of them do seem to have a youthful appearance. Patient confidence might be shaken a little if a dermo had the knarly, road rash type of skin!

I tried red eye fix it on Photo Shop, but to no avail....

3 days post procedure.  Waiting on the green, then yellow, then....
