The topic: Had a thingy on my back removed this morning.


The doctor noticed it last August, said he wanted to remove it. Finally made the appoinment, went in this morning. 

The thing he removed is not the thing I thought he was going to remove. He asked me how long had this bump been scaly on the top? It kind of hurts, not much, but if you know it's there and the bra rubs it or whatever, I'm aware that it's there and alive and hitting nerves. So, he and the nurse keep zinging it with their fingers. As if it's something they've never seen before. I kept saying "ow", they'd apologize, then do it again. 

Anyway, the flat dark mole was removed and will be sent out for testing. He wants me to make another appointment so he can remove the other one. When I'd asked if he could do them both at the same time, he said he'd rather have the results from the first one before he decided what to do on the second. He didn't seem very concerned about it, he said he could burn it off or slice it off. Oh, yay.


My doc is not only into ‘natural’ medicine (hmm, your saliva gland is blocked. Get some war heads and suck on them) but funny. I had one of those things on my shoulder removed and he wanted to make another appointment to take one off my leg. I asked why two trips and he said “because I can charge you twice, silly”. Then explained the same thing your’s told you. Neither of them were anything other than moles with really dry skin.
