If you are of a delicate disposition look away now

If you are of a delicate disposition look away now

Well, I have decided to post a photo of the growth on my face, it has grown since the beginning of March, should have been removed on April 21st but I was in hospital with a gall stone. It is due to be removed on June 6th, can't come soon enough! I haven't been out since mid April! Who would want to see me like this?

Dear Carole, the sooner the better for you. You are a lovely lady who will shortly be feeling back on track again. Hopefully the hospital sticks to the date and then you can look forward to getting out and about. and I hope you are feeling better from your gall stone op.

All the very best.

Oh that looks very uncomfortable.....you poor thing, Carole. It appears to get in the way of your glasses and cannula. Will it be a fairly straightforward op when you have it done?

All the best

It is a day case, I have to be in hospital by 8am and should be out by 12, local anesthetic good job because my lungs won't take a general, it looks big but it is like a tube hanging there, if you can grasp that.

I am so glad that it is easier to remove than it looks, Carole. Is it like a skin 'tag' that has got above itself?

You will have to hold a party to celebrate once the growth has been removed. The nurse in me is curious as how it started in the first place. All the best XX

Carol this must have been a huge worry for you, growing so large and so quickly too. Hope your operation to remove it takes place and is not deferred. I hope too that you have been reassured about this . have you been told that it might be a huge cyst? These can fill up very fast. June 6th will soon be behind you and you can look forward to going out again. Will you please let us know how things went? Loving thoughts, Polly x

ouch Carol, that looks so so sore.

lets hope they stick to the date of 6th June or maybe bring it forward due to a cancellation.

with day surgery you will get home the same day - I suppose at least your body has had a chance to recover from the gall stone.

Definitely some retail therapy is needed for you.

Take care.

Best wishes
