Hi, I am post-op for 2 months and was wondering if its normal for the skin around the incision to be numb.
Thanks in advance for replies

I had a resection Sept 07 and did'nt really notice that the incision site was numb. I had a skin cancer removed, 4 weeks ago, from my face , on my jaw line, with the scar running from my bottom lip to half way down my neck and I find it is still numb. I wonder if and when we will get the feeling back. Keep us posted.

I have a few scars that have lost the numbness and some from years ago that have not and never will. It depends on how much nerve damage is done when they cut I guess. SydneyJo I had one removed from my cheek and they pulled the sides together and sewed them up. Now when I run my finger down that side it feels like a part is missing. Like my finger jumps over the part I expect to feel. I dont think that will ever be as it was either.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
