Just returned from my consultation with the surgeon. He is just a general surgeon and is really applying pressure to me to just have my melanoma removed in his office with local anesthesia. I’ve had this surgery before and I know what size chunk they take... my anxiety is OFF THE CHARTS about being awake during something like this. Path report says it’s in situ, but I’ve not been able to see it for myself. I don’t know any numbers. Also when I asked him “how much will you take” he basically said that he just ‘eyeballs it’... I said don’t you base it from the depth of the lesion and he said no. I don’t feel confident about this at all. My Family is pressuring me to have it done in-office to save money. Any advice?
