Got hone from surgery about an hour ago. Medical nuclear imaging took longer than my surgeries did! I was in the operating room for 1:50.

No nausea from anesthesia. Now I have to keep my foot elevated for a week.

Awaiting WLE biopsy and SLN biopsy now.

Bet it feels good to get that behind you!  I'm surprised they sent you home so quickly after a full-thickness skin graft.  My surgeon said that I would be in the hospital an entire week for a full-thickness graft.  (Ended up with a split thickness graft and stayed three days in the hospital.)  Good for you, it'slways better to be home in your own surroundings and eat your own food!

Today I have an appointment with the plastic surgeon to assess the skin graft. Afterward I meet with my Oncologist to discuss, I believe, the biopsy results from the WLE and SLNB.

i hope both are good meetings!
