I'm scheduled to have an area excised from my axillary on Tuesday. The surgeon is thinking it will be about 3 cm in diameter.
My question is: how deep can they cut in this area?
In 2007 I had a 14 cm area removed from my groin and had many problems healing. 17 surgeries later and a flap repair I finally healed. He is going to use ACELL instead of stitching.
