Pain after excision – how long will it last?

From the community: Curious how long until the pain’s gone after excision….I had unstaged melanoma but a fairly large incision that 1 year later is still tender some days.

    I wish it would go away and you wouldn’t have to deal with it, @Deedee, but I’m glad you’re able to see the positives too! – Nina, SkinCancer.net Team

    Thanks for sharing your info, @Deedee! Is it bothersome, or something you get along with? Wonder if you use any treatment or remedies? – Nina, SkinCancer.net Team

    @NinaHU it is somewhat bothersome, I just get along. Really hoping it gets better, but 15 months later, im kinda on the “i doubt its going to” side. I remind myself to not complain per say, im so blessed & grateful to be alive.
