Thank you all for your prayers, still no word yet but it's only been 5 days, I'm hoping monday. I know a plastic surgeon, that i have gone to before to do margins on my skin, while my dermatologist was on maternity leave so I think I will go see him if the results indicate that more needs to come off. He's really good, and well for lack of better terms, he handles lots of boobies, so if anyone can save the function of my breast it's him.

I want to urge everyone to get your skin checked. Do a self check every month it only takes a few mintues, and please wear suncreen everyday, see a dermatologist once a year. Pigments in the skin are prone to change during pregnancy but I am a firm believer in better safe than sorry, the prognosis for skin cancer, specifically melanoma, the most dangerous kind, is 95% when caught early before it spreads, after it metastesises (sp) it goes as low as a 10% survival rate depending on where it spreads to. I don't want to be preachy but it's not something i ever thought I would be living with, and it something I don't want other people to have to go through, even when you're "cancer free" you still think about it every day bc you have to. Please get checked. www.skincancer.org will give you the "ABCDE" of how to check your skin and what to look for.
