|Dr. Mc, moi and Sweetness at Ashley's wedding last Saturday.|
At my last visit to the Internist, he suggested I have a lesion on my chest examined by a dermatologist. And since I've met my out-of-pocket insurance costs for the year, I made an appointment and saw a dermatologist today. She froze about 15 AK lesions on my arms, back and chest, and is concerned with a spot on my left arm. I have to go back to see her in a month so she can check the spot to make sure it hasn't advanced to SCC. If freezing it doesn't make it go away, she biopsy it. At that time she is also going to check other parts of my body for AKs. In the meantime, every place she froze with nitrogen is now red and blistering. Thank goodness I didn't have anything on my face because what I can see on my arms looks nasty and every place stings. Let's see, what long-sleeve blouse can I wear tonight?
Today I'm creating nothing for the second day in a row. I just took some Advil to see if it will help with the stinging. I'm going to have a short (?) nap and hope the stinging is gone when I awake.
