Hi to all of you. I recently had a mole removed from the side of my back. Last Monday(five days ago), my doctor called to say that it was melanoma. The specialist who had studied the mole recommended excising another 1cm diameter minimum around what the dermatologist had already cut off. So yesterday I went in for that surgery. She cut out a large (about 4inx1in) area of skin on my back. I don't have a lot of pain today, but am extremely tired. I just feel almost a little flu-like. I don't have fever, but I feel so shaky and exhausted. Is this normal? Is this my body reacting to the trauma of being hacked up, or is this my brain reacting to the trauma of hearing the word "cancer"? Have any of you felt like this post-surgery?
