Under the knife
The process used was called a Rhomboid Flap - The rhomboid (Limberg) flap can be used to close defects almost anywhere on the body. It is versatile in that a random pattern flap can be raised from any one or all corners of the rhomboid. The defect is filled with tissue of the same thickness and colour, and with good vascularity.
I've got to go back in a week to have the stitches removed and get the results of the biopsy and, fingers crossed, they will have removed all of the cancerous cells. I'm feeling quite positive about all this.
