FU Skin Cancer: Round 2

After my first round of FU-5, I was so happy after a few more weeks that I could uncover my head!

Then I went for my follow up visit to my dermatologist only to find out that what I thought were scabs on my head from the treatment were more lesions.  Ugh!

So here I am in round 2 of chemotherapy cream with an added cream called Differin (used to treat acne), to add an extra layer of aggression to get rid of the skin cancer once and for all!  I hope anyway. This time, 4 weeks application and 4 weeks healing.

Since my husband is the one who actually applies the chemicals ( and in round 1 a lot of the cream gunked up in my hair) what we decided to do different this time was to shave my scalp, to make it easier to apply. I am hppy to report that it is *much* easier and takes way less time.  Since I choose to wear caps and scarves anyway, even with hair, no one will notice. We only shaved the scalp and not the rest of the head. Photos below on day 1.

 

 

 

 

As with round 1 treatment, I will post periodically on the progress.

FU Skin Cancer!
