Now I know how it feels being scalped…

…well, kind of, I would say I know how it feels like being scalped on local anaesthesia. Got a lipoma removed from my forehead this morning. I’m usually a pretty tough person and the local anaesthesia really helped a lot, once it wore off though, it started to hurt pretty good. The funny thing is that you normally don’t even realize how much your forehead is used in expressing stuff, as it’s really automatic. So it automatically hurt a lot during the day…thank god for (light) painkillers…

Me, compression bandage on

The compression bandage will come off tomorrow during the usual after-OP checkup…let’s see how it looks with a normal bandage on tomorrow…

  1. Do you have after pictures? I want to see if there is a scar.

  2. I don’t have a current one, but I can assure you that it payed off to visit a plastic surgeon instead of your regular surgeon…there’s basically only a thin line, which will probably cease to exist over time, especially when treated properly (rubbing it with some skin lotion every now and then)…
