Then he got to my original scar. Out comes the tool for a closer look at that nice large spot that has appeared on top of it. I laughed and said that one was the one that plays with my head because it is exactly where the melanoma was. "I think I want to take it and send it for a biopsy then" He said it wasn't abnormal for freckles to appear on top of a scar like that, but with the placement and size, it would be better to test it. So I agreed.
He was very quick and I only felt the initial stick of the needle when he numbed it. He removed it and then asked me to look before he bandaged it to show me that the appearance of my scar will only slightly be affected by it.
He did say that since I have passed the 1 year mark, I could go to every 6 months for exams. I had been told that I was supposed to do 3 months for 2 1/2 years, then 6 months until I reach the 5 year mark, so I am not sure of that. There was a thing last visit where the nurse said that she thought it was 6 months, and Dr K corrected it to 3 months. I'm not sure what I am going to do there..
First, I have to wait for these results. He said that they would be in by the end of the week.
