Well, two weeks ago I decided to remove a large mole I had on my left hand since I was a little kid (It looked like this: i.imgur.com/Qjre2U3.jpg
Nothing bad was happening with it, because I always was extremely careful, and I always had it covered with band aid in the summer (Also, I never liked tanning in the first place).
Yet, even if nothing bad was happening with it, my doctor said that such marks (in my case - Spitz nevus en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spitz_ne…
), have a slight chance of becoming a Melanoma. Also, I was tired of being stressed every summer, or sunny day, so that something bad may happen with my mole, so I decided to have a surgery.
It's not the best place if it comes to removing such marks, because there's not much skin to patch the hole after the nevus is cut out, so I might end up with no ability to bend my finger. The other option was to get a skin transplant from the other place of my body, but it's also not the best solution, since it's a different kind of skin texture, so I'd have to put various medical oils on it every that (and it's troublesome). Luckily, my surgeon found a way to patch it without a need of skin transplant. I have a two huge, deep cuts instead of one, but I should regain the ability to bend my finger.
It happened over two weeks ago, but I was hesitant to mention it, because I was waiting for the results of my biopsy. As I said, nothing bad was happening with my mole, but there was still that nagging thought on the back of my had, that it might be something really bad. The results are good, so I'm very happy about that.
It will take one year, until my scars will age, and the whole healing process will be done (the wounds will close up much sooner). Funny, because those cuts are still healing, and they don't look good, but my doctors are actually saying, that they are surprised, because my wounds are healing fast. Now, I will never believe any Hollywood movie, about wounds being healed in one week :'D. It's just a fucking finger, and it takes so long.
I have to say, that even if it's a pinky finer of the left hand (aka, probably the most useless finger), it's really hard to proceed with normal daily life without it (because it's immobilized, I can't bend it until my wounds will close), like opening jars, and other such things. I have to ask for help, it's embarrasing :'D. I also type on my keyboard with both o my hands, so it's really hard to remember, that I can't use my pinky for the time being (it also involves using command keys on my tablet, this is silly :'D ).
So yeah, I had to slow down a bit with my work, but I'm going to have two, pretty rad frankenstein scars on my finger when everything will heal up.
Thanks for reading my silly post, take care guys!
