Thanks Ginkoba5. I’ll look into that powder. Meanwhile I’m fresh from a scalp MOHS from BCC where I usually parted my hair. I bought a bunch of hats, all SPF rated, and until the incision heals and I regrow hair up there, I’m covering my head!!!

@denise3p, I’m glad the pain is going down although I wish you were headache free! I’m glad you have the skin check and suture so they can look and make sure everything is going according to plan. I very much hope for you that they don’t find anything more. I know it’s best to mentally prepare for them to find something than be disappointed if…

Come to think of it, I have yet to meet a surgeon who has had a total hip replacement but they all have…

I started applying fluorouracil to my scalp October 27 and did the prescribed 3 week treatment, ending on November 17. After 3 weeks of healing I was prescribed to get this follow up.

During treatment, my skin hardly turned red and never was I in any pain. Well…..little did I know that that meant it wasn’t working! I had six scaly bumps on my…

It’s one week today. It doesn’t hurt near as bad. But it’s still oozing a bit. I was afraid there incision was infected but I don’t think it is. I still have headaches but that’s almost normal for me. LOL Next week is suture removal and the skin check appointment I have had scheduled for months. I’m really hoping they don’t find anything…

@denise3p, have you noticed any improvement so far? I’m sorry to hear you’re dealing with so much pain after your treatment, although I can tell you that I’ve heard the same from a couple of other people here too. I’m glad you found it when you did. I’m tagging a couple of members who have mentioned similar pain here: @dhowell and @deanna-dee-taylo…
