Oh, the things auto-correct has done to me!!! LOL
Yes, that was Incision.
@denise3p That would be incision, not infusion. Thanks, auto correct.
@denise3p Hats are a great idea, whether or not you have a fresh infusion! Wishing you a smooth and speedy recovery. Take good care of you! Judy, SkinCancer.net Moderator
Thank you Tony!
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…
I have submitted a report on my Efudix and Metavix treatment together with photos but I guess the photos must have been too frightening as the report has not been posted.
I am very happy with the result of Efudix and I now have a nice shiny, smooth bald head with no actinic keratosis or signs of any BCCs or SQCs.
Well worth the pain.
That should be our war cry….It’s my body, I have every right to have my say.
So easy just to let doctors steer us to the treatment they prefer to give. I have yet to meet a dermatologist or plastic surgeon that actually has skin cancer.
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.
Thanks for asking!!
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…
I am not sure either but as a safeguard, I use a sun block that was developed and is made in a country that has the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, Australia.
I use SunSense Ultra SPF50+.
Would not use any other type.

@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…
