I'm glad to join this forum. I've very recently been diagnosed with 1b melanoma on my fore arm and I'm going on for a wider local excision and sentinel biopsy in 2 weeks. I wondered if anyone could help with a couple of questions I have.
Does anyone know how likely they are to do a skin graft? I'm only asking as my original wound took ages to heal and it still very tight!
How long do people normally take off work? I'm told it will be a general anaesthetic.
Any help would be very appreciated. I'm nervous and worried but trying to stay positive as I know it could have been a lot worse!
