Well, I had my moles removed this morning. In the end the Doctor removed 4 (3 on my back and 1 on my stomach). The worst bit was having 4 lots of anaesthetic injections, as they all stung a bit, but other than that I didn't feel a thing (which was amazing as I usually don't respond properrly to locals
). Our surgery has a room set up where they can do minor surgical procedures so I didn't need to go to the hospital. The Dr was just about to remove the last (and biggest) Mole with the scalpel when one of the other Doctors knocked on the door and entered without waiting. My Dr was shouting
Don't come in, don't come in!!
(But he came in anyway
) I could tell he was really angry. Good job he has steady hand eh
There was a little problem when I went to get up of the bed, as one of the one's on my back must have started bleeding again and the nurse had to apply pressure for about 5 minutes to stop the blood. The tissue paper I was laying on was quite messy when I looked at it too. The GP used one of those cauterizing gun thingeys to stop the bleeding - it left a lovely smell of burning flesh in the air
I now have 4 large dressings on various parts of my body. I have been told that if any of the wounds look even the slightest bit infected, that I should go back without delay. The bits that he removed are going to be taken aware for histological testing but I am not worried about that, I am sure all will be ok. The only reason I approached my GP to get them removed was because they were in awkward places and kept bleeding and getting knocked.
I notice the wounds are a little tender if I move a bit too suddenly, but other than that, they are not too painful. All in all it was a very straight forward process and I am just crossing my fingers that they heal without too much fuss as well
Bye for now,
