    Good gracious Buck! The only thing I fail the surgery for is the rush-rush. The four numbing shots in the lip were very painful - like being electrocuted - my feet kicked a few times, and then it was only a few minutes before they started using the chainsaw on me!

    Joking on that though, she used a scalpel. And, yes, I know they had others to attend to, so I have to forgive them for the rush too.

    I thank the Lord for the VA. I wouldn't be here otherwise. It sucks getting old having continued maintenance issues

    That part I didn't mind - she was pretty sweet, calling me sir and all that stuff. Maybe she got her revenge by cutting me while I wasn't as numb as I should have been
    HA!

    Deep, As you know from your experience with these Mohs surgeries on your face too, after the surgery is complete in an area and they have determined that all of the cancerous cells have been removed. depending on how big an area they wound up operating on, the surgeon then begins pulling and pushing to get the skin they need to close up the area and stitch it to stay and heal where they want it to so you look half human, or if you will, as close as possible to your sexy self again. A minor plastic surgery if you will. Now, if the man is like you and me and has had several of these Mohs surgeries on his face and like me, several on one side of the face, you are left with somewhat of a rougher face to shave since now one side of your face has been pushed and pulled and drastically changed your original beard and how it grows. Of course the upside is that the left side of my face looks like I'm 35 years old while the right side is still the 73 year old me!!! LMBO Anyhow, I found it hard to find an electric razor that would give me a close shave on the left side until I bought one of those Norelco electric razors with a triangle shaped, three cutting head, razors that sort of floats and cuts in five directions while shaving and perfect for that uneven face after these Mohs surgeries and the ups and downs and ins and outs of your new face surface.. They start at about $80.00 and are worth every penny to me to get a good, clean shave. Just thought I'd pass that on to you.

    Buck, thank you! Seriously.

    I was wondering what I can do with shaving my face now. I've always been a razor man, and of course now I keep cutting myself - combination of "got tha shakes", and division of eyesight - too many eye surgeries. I need to glide into using a modern roto tiller!!!

    Sorry you had to go through all this Deep. It does get better though. If you took a look at the top of my head it looks like (or just feels like) someone drove a tractor over it. Guess what? The hair didn’t grow back! Lol!
    Getting old and weaker just sucks, I know but I’m still glad the good lord let me have a whack at this life. Best of luck on the healing process brother!

    Father in Law has had Not basil but Melanoma 17 Times! SO many that he was involved in a case study group for Gene identification. He has beaten all of them. It is not fun and his back has Football shaped scars all over it. The key is to keep after it. DO NOT let your appointments slide. These need to be treated ASAP. Dad goes in every three months and they are always burning freezing lopping something. Stay with it friend and keep positive about it.

    They say better Lucky than good and better ugly than dead! Keep the faith. You are probably more bothered by it than anyone else and that is understandable.

    In 1964, I was at Fort Lewis, and I had terrible acne, up to 28 new dripping pimples every day. I went on sick call, and was told I needed to wash my face better. After a couple sick calls and no improvement, I was spending an hour a day washing my face, and still the idiots insisted I needed to wash it more. Finally, I got a different doctor, who told me to stop washing it. And the doctor gave me a profile not to shave for a couple weeks. Every sergeant I saw needed to review my profile papers... He also gave me tetracycline pills, and in two weeks my face was clean.

    I took a lot of heckling because the doctor happened to be the VD specialist at that clinic. Well, he knew his infections.

    I learned that if I shaved with a metal razor the pimples came back. All these years, I have had to use the Norelco razors like you describe.

    Age 70 sure isn't as pretty as age 21!

    Had a dental cleaning this morning, and my dentist has a new assistant from Columbia, South America. Oh man she was nice looking, about 35 - 40, and just as sweet as she could be. I think I'll need another cleaning soon!

    The wound is pretty much healed now. So, here's what I look like now!
