Although the mole turned out to be innocuous, the wound they made getting it out hasn't been. Even though it's almost five weeks since the stitches were removed, it still hasn't healed properly and it starting to become more of a problem ("disintegrating" is the term they've used). So I'm in to see the nurses every couple of days at the moment for constant wound dressing and lots of poking and prodding. They reassure me that it's not too bad, but make vague rumblings about darker possibilities ("at least it's not tracking at the moment; that would be your worst nightmare" - that kind of thing. I find it so comforting).
Anyway, for any Edinburghers who may happen to be reading this, no pats on the back please!
