My Experience With Melanoma-in-situ and Skin Graft
Thank you so much for the photo which gives me a lot of reassurance. Once again there's hope that things will improve once mine is done. I will show my daughter this blog. I know she will be reassured seeing that you still look beautiful despite going through this. I hope for the same outlook as you have..and the same strength. You're an inspiration!
Thank you! Yours may turn out better than mine. I wish you all the best. Feel free to comment again in the future with an update.
You're looking incredible & your skin graft is barely noticeable anymore! You have been such an inspiration to so many people, thank you for taking the time to update us. I'm on my 3rd year of having my skin graft (upper lip) and just finished several laser sessions. Last week I had filler to try & correct the concave appearance which has bothered me from day one and never really "filled in". Oh the joys!! A long drawn out process, but finally seeing some small improvement. Best wishes to you & thanks again for providing people with hope!
Thank you for writing. Nice to know that filler is helping somewhat. I appreciate your note very much. Best wishes to you!
Thank you so much for this blog. It has helped me more than you can imagine. You have made me start to feel positive.
Thanks for letting me know. Stay positive.
Thank you so much for writing this blog and posting all the pics. I'm just over a year post skin graft under my eye. It's the worst ordeal I've ever had to go through. I've been in such a deep depression and this helps. Can I ask a question? Both my dad and aunt have gone through at least six moh's for spots on their face. The skin surgeon has prescribed and they have used Efudex. I'm thinking about asking for it so I can prevent future surgeries. I've seen the pictures online and it looks horrible while in the process. Have you used this or have any experience with it? I am 46 years old.
Thank you for your kind words. I've never used the topical treatments, but a friend of mine in her 30's used some form of it. For two weeks she had a lot of peeling and redness, and her face looked very good afterwards. There are different brands and formula strengths and I don't remember which she was prescribed. If you're willing to endure a couple of weeks of hiding your face, it might be something to ask your dermatologist about. If you're like me, you probably got pretty good at hiding, after the graft. If anyone else reading this blog sees your question, hopefully they'll add a comment.
