Hello there. I am new this site, but not ACS. I was looking for an online support group and checked further into this one before deciding to post.
I am a 7 year survivor and still fighting skin cancer. I am currently playing the waiting game on a biopsy that was done right before the holiday. I have had both melanoma and BCC. TO date I have 52 biopsies and five surerigies two that were MOHS.
I have my good days and bad days and I guess you could say this is a bad day and that's because its been a week and I heard nothing back. I just moved so I was referred to a new doctor whom I loved, but that doesn't change the fact that I hate these check ups. One never gets used to being a cutting board. I have done the full photo body imaging so the biopsy's aren't as frequent but they still happen due to my history.
I have two kids and a wonderful husband that is my biggest support, but I also know that its hard on him when I am beyond cranky and anything and everything sets me off and I cry at the drop of a hat. Every three months I go in for check ups and it really wears on me.
I noticed there are few people on here that have had MOHS... I would love to hear how your experience.. I had a wonderful doctor but really hate the whole experience.
