I was in and out in less than an hour. The procedure involved a little nip here and a tuck there to be sure all the cancerous cells were cut away. The wound is about the size of a penny, not very deep, not too much bleeding. Instructions include lying down or sitting with foot elevated, no walking (exercise type) until Sunday, go to the wound specialist next Thursday for a check up. Meanwhile I have to change the dressing once a day, can take a shower on Friday, take some antibiotics for three days and, if all tests come out as the doc expects, that's it. Not as bad as I feared. As a diabetic, if someone approaches my lower extremities with a knife I am filled with dread and foreboding. But the original biopsies healed up very nicely. I am confident this one will, too.
