Can anyone tell me what to expect for my upcoming re-excision surgery? I had a shave biopsy on October on the back of my knee that took over a month to heal. Now my doctor will be going back to take .5 cm margins because the biopsy from UCSF came back as spitzoid of uncertain potential. I know these margins are small but I had so much trouble healing the shave that I am very nervous about the procedure. The lesion was deep in the crease behind my knee and I have to get up and down off the floor all day with my toddlers so rest is not much of an option after the first day.

 

My thanks to you and all of this forum.
