Procedure or Surgery Associated with Skin Cancer - Melanoma. Posted on August 22, 2012 View this journey (4 Experiences)

In may my husband went in for a wide excision for a tumor in the interior of is Butt (close to the rectum. By the time he got it removed in the matter of about 3 week it had went from 2mm to 2.4mm and 10mm deep. the doctor had told us that is should be a one day procedure in and out. Not so much he ended up staying over night with lots of pain. The pain took about 3 weeks to subside so our lives were pretty much home bound because the pain took a lot out of him. Oh yeah and we made one run to the er because his stitches popped never knew the butt could bleed so much but it can.
