Yes I know my comment is sort of political BUT it is medical as well.

I saw former NSW LABOR Minister M Costa on tv last night.
The issue of the transplant of gene "edited" (GM like as in what they do to food crops for a better yield) pigs heart into a man was being discussed.

M Costa said "yes , you never know they may be transplanting brains into GREENS next".

Went in for my skin check today - a few spots zapped off.

But she found 2 spots that need removal - I hate that. I took a Wednesday appointment to do it - as didn't want to wait till Friday.

They rang and said they had a cancellation today if I wanted to come back ... so I did - just home from it. One on the side of the nose - in the groove. The other above the left eye.

My nose is now all numb. And my eye brow seems to hang. All looks a bit odd. But will be OK tomorrow when the stuff wears off. Boy it stings when she puts the anaesthetic in.

I’d hate having that done not pleasant at all.

These skin spots are a nuisance. She cut two off my face - very small - but says not to get them wet. how do you shower and not get your face wet.

Stitches out on Monday.

know how you feel.
Have a few scars from surgery to have moles removed and last time was just a visit to a surgeon for a "local" in Office Basal cell carcinoma removal from my lip.
Wasnt pretty and he blew my lip up without anaesthetic or a local then cut it out.
Missus had same guy remove an actual cancerous mole from her hip and she thought he was a butcher.

Busted a big filling out of a molar on Tuesday and was lucky to get in to Dentist on Friday for a fix.

Yesterday, a bloody bad day for me. The morning at 8am on the site - I had a small seizure (mainly hand) then I said to my employee I'm going home. 2 hours later, another seizure in my right arm it was :)ing ---the same time it was going into my right frontal lobe (it's hard to describe with people). It subsided after 2 minutes. Then 1 hour later I have rung my DR. I spoke to the receptionist and asked to speak to my DOC. 10 minutes she rang me. Then, go and get a PCR test then, she uploaded a script on my Mobile to increase my epileptic meds. Only by 400mg.
It would take 2-3 days for the results with the COVID-19. Though last night I have spare rad. It was negative. Jesus C - so if I'm negative, then my seizures are coming back! F.:):)..!

It's a good thing I got 5 minutes on my mobile - negative, though the problem I had 2 seizures yesterday. I haven't had a seizure for many years. Crap...maybe I have to see my neurologist? It's been years. The spine crap - C7,6,5,4 and L5,4 and sciatica it's a neurosurgeon.
Jesus C - :rolleyes: I'm more careful now. Give me a bloody break, God.

Hope it goes well mate.

Nothing more scarier than something like that happening.

Doctors did say to me years ago if your stress levels are quite high - sometimes you may have a seizure. Maybe they were correct. Business and the climate about the changing process with even ordering materials - big expense. Possibly subconsciously, it's taking a toll on me? Who knows. I know I'm stressed, but usually, I'm better than most as I own my own property.

Stress is a funny thing. Some people thrive on it. To others its a killer.

I knew a person who seemed to live on it - they needed it to really get going.

Best of luck with your health but given your health surely you do not still have a drivers licence?
