Nose Notes

So, I have been dismissed for five months, enough time for the body to replace the grafted skin with site-appropriate cells. I’m to massage it to prevent puckering. LOL “Don’t touch your nose. Touch your nose.” Consistency is not a feature of the medical profession.

Anyway, the surgeon suggested it would be necessary to follow up with radiation, which would have to be administered five days a week for four weeks to insure the cancer does not return, even at the risk of the radiation causing cancer in about ten years. I said “No way.”

But, that reminded me that when I was a teen, the doctor family friend tried to treat my acne with some sort of ratiation. Will have to look that up.
