LOL. I want to go to the Doctor's without being cut. I went to the dermatologist today about
my sore by my stoma. She seemed to think it wasn't pyoderma, as it lacks the uneven purple border characteristic of it. So far, they think it's just a recurring ulcer. Boo. So anyway, they took a biopsy of the area, and as a result I now have a sore, AND three stitches under my wafer. Really, it's no big deal, but sometimes I just get tired of being poked
open, then sewn back up.
Now I wonder how long my wafer is gonna last this time. I hope at least four days, but lately it's been two if I'm lucky. I HATE this sore!!!!
