During my annual derm visit, my doc asked if I was still blogging and I told her no because I really hadn't had much to blog about. For me, I've realized this is just an ongoing little battle and that's how I see it. I've gone through enough Efudex treatments to now self-treat when I see a spot and that's about it.
Over the past year, I've treated a couple small spots. Of course, each winds up spreading! Most recently, a spot on my collarbone. Since it's become such a common occurrence, I just don't think about it any more...just do it and get on with it.
Last week's derm visit wound up adding 3 spots as noted. The one near my breast I was really surprised about because it just looks like maybe a pink "rubbing" spot from my bras, but it's definitely reacting!
The spot on my left arm I started treating about a week before my derm visit and it's definitely reacting, but not spreading as much as they usually do, which is nice.
The spot behind my knee I would've never caught! The minute I see it in the mirror, it's a no-brainer and it's easily felt. But when I shower, I use loofah gloves, so I never felt it!! Dr is letting me have 6 weeks of Efudex to see if I can prevent a surgery. Got my fingers crossed!
