I am recently diagnosed, with surgery pending. They are hoping (& I am) to be able to do it under local anaesthetic, due to my other conditions of Rheumatoid Arthritis and COPD etc. It is to be rather a large excision, with the possibility of more to follow if necessary, and they have warned me firmly that I will be bald. Yikes! Having no intention of facing life in that state, I have found three straw hats (children's!) for the immediate post-operative period. Later there will be talk of alternatives.
Would love to hear from anyone who has had this done, your experience would be very helpful, please.
