The lump, at its largest, was only about 1 1/4" across and about 1/2" thick. It also had a hole in the middle which went all the way down to the skull. I took pictures of it but decided not to save it! It was pretty gross.
Today is the 5th day after surgery and following doctor's orders, I removed the dressings. I was totally surprised to see the length of the incision and the 60+ staples used to close it. The doc who did this is a plastic surgeon so hopefully the scars will subside over time.
I can't wait to see my new hairline after all the twisting and stretching!
While I don't normally wear a hat, I think I will need to decide on some type of head-wear for the foreseeable future. I can't decide between a hat or a bandanna. Any suggestions?
The pain following surgery was some of the worst I have felt in my life, but after just 5 days it has diminished drastically and I have gone 24 hours without pain medication.
