Hi just checking in , Stitches out and looking good, need to stay off or no exercise or at least , no heavy for another 1 week or so,
Just keep wondering if it will pop up someplace else and have to go over the same thing again. Well guess can't worry over something that may never happen. Thanks for help along the way.

Hi inpower,
Glad to hear the surgery's done and you're recovering.  There is always a risk of reoccuring skin cancer once you've had it. (I've had several.) Be sure to avoid a lot of sun as best you can, and use sunscreen.  Keep an eye on your skin and if you see a rough or ragged inflamed spot that doesn't go away on its own, head to the dermatologist.  Now that you know what it looks like you can be on the lookout.
Happy healing!
