Going in for surgery

tomorrow Friday Nov 1 to remove a cancerous growth on my right leg. I am going to have to have a skin graft from a plastic surgeon after the growth is removed. I will be laid up for about 10 days so my communication here may be limited.


  • Wow Tim,

    I`m sure things will go well, and you`ll be fit as a fiddle in no time.
    Hate that surgery crap, been through hernias 3 times,,get well soon and check-in when you can!
    BTW Tim, isn`t tomorrow the 2nd? LOL!

    Like you say all the time....Them guy's that know what they're doing...do the best job. They find, figure, and TEST.

    I'm sure your surgeon and Doctor will be doing the same.

    I agree with Andrew

    Since your going to be layed up you might as well hang out on the Wall. Looking forward to reading more from you.

    Good Luck with the doctor and I'm sure you'll be back and bothering Judy in no time.

    Good luck timmie

    Recover well and soon.
  • Well here I am

    on Judy's computer as I can't get down stairs to my computer. The surgery went well and all the grwth was removed. Here is the good part there was no need to do a skin graft which speeds up recovery.

    Thank you all for your prayers and concern the Wall is a great place.

    I had the surgery done at the local Va Hospital and those folks really are great and take wonderful care of us veterans.

    Now I bewtter get back into my chair or Judy will have my scalp.
