As noted before it's superficial, less than a millimeter deep. It is not even deep enough to warrant the automatic checking of nearby lymph nodes, though she offered us that option. Unfortunately it is a bit spread out on top and current best practice is to excise a centimeter beyond the borders, which means the wound will be a larger area than Andy was expecting. Also, it's on the top of my foot so going a centimeter deep is not feasible. They will need to do a skin graft on the day of surgery. There will be a pathology report and she'll know if she got everything, so if it is worse than she expected we can still deal with it.
They've already given me a surgical boot (This confused me until I saw it, since the podiatrist called my last one a boot. This is more like a boot, while the last one was just a glorified sandal) and crutches. There will also be a small wound vac in the mix, the surgeon believes probably for about a week. The surgery is scheduled for February 19th, which is a month to date after my BSO. Luckily, since the BSO was so recent, they didn't need to do another pre-anesthesia blood test and EKG.
