Operation for BCC around eye in 2008. Second in 2010 and third (massive) op (Mohs surgery) taking away half my cheek flesh, lowerlid and nose which involved flap from forehead. The operation was exceptionally graphic and I used a lot of internal resources (mostly humour) to get me through. I have had around 10 further operations to try to build up my lower lid and allow my eye to shut. I was about to embark on what was probably going to be my final operation when they some the skin cancer on my upper lid.
I realised a while back that I was potentially suffering from PTS as I put a very brave face on it. To quote my own words "if I shed just one tear I dont think I'll ever stop".
I am now finding it very difficult not to feel depressed about the forthcoming Mohs (who knows how much skin they are going to take this time) even though I know I shouldn't live it twice.
Also, I am now starting to worry that it is in my other eye.
BTW, I'm no spring chicken, coming up for 62 but still finding this difficult because it's my face, my eyes, potentially my sight.
