Well been there done that !!!!!!!!!
Specialist has taken a huge punch biopsy that needed 4 stitches. DH still needs to have a proper operation to remove the melanoma, but once they know the depth they can then decide if they need to check lympnodes while he is under GA.
If however this biopsy proves to be a non event, then he will have his bigger operation under a local anesthetic. So this waiting is torture, please bear with me.
