Mohs Surgery on Forehead - Clearwater, FL

I had Mohs surgery about a week and a half ago,...

I had Mohs surgery about a week and a half ago, when I went in the office to start the procedure, I had high hopes as the cancer had been on my forehead for at least 8 years, that's right I could never afford to have it looked at til now because now I have Medicare. I had a free screening about a year ago at a very respected hospital where they had told me they were pretty sure it was either basal cell or squamous cancer, although I had already suspected this after internet research, my cancer resembled many photos I had seen.....so now I have a 10cm wound that covers almost all of my forehead, I have never seen pics even slightly close to the size of the one I now have...the Dr. only went 2 layers down and then had to stop due to the amount of cancer (and also the size of my wound). I now have a HUGE open sore on my head, I am due tomorrow for an office visit to change the dressing and discuss my options which are radiation, or a pill or more cutting.....I am wondering if I should have ever even started this since Basal Cell almost never causes death, I REALLY DOUBT if I would have just left it as it was if it would EVER have turned into the nightmare it is now HELP

How did your office visit go? BCC removal can look pretty scary at first, but hopefully it will heal with time. Please keep us posted when you can and I hope you're doing okay. *hugs*
