I have had XXXXXXX and squamous skin cancer . Many
They were very nice but since the surgery was so extensive I lost my left eyebrow and my eye would not close so I had to use systane type eye ointment every night. (Just to let u know how extensive the surgery was. they had a metal plate that they put into my eye to protect it during radiation therapy. I began getting eye infections and had to roll back sessions, then after barely a month the tech scratched my cornea with the metal plate. It was affecting my eye sight and between my surgeon and my children, and being a Dr's ex- wife, I decided to discontinue the radiation therapy. That was over 2 years.ago. I have had to have many more skin surgeries and recently I have notice more headaches (migraines) discoloration in the area that was operated on and it seems to be getting larger ,more sensitive, and some of the areas resemble moles and other ares look brusied. I also get many more eye infections. The oncologist told me if it comes back it will head straight behind the eye and into the brain and at this point it is lightd out. Any suggestions?
CT scan brain and biopsy
Since you had a metal plate put into eye and had radiation therapy and now is having headaches, discoloration seems larger and some ares resemble moles and also looked bruised and you are getting more eye infections i would advise you to do a CT scan of brain first.
Also apply ciprofloxacin eye drops 2 drops in bilateral eyes for 7 days.
Also do a biopsy test of the area that resembles moles
If biopsy come out as positive them the cancer had come back and you may need further treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation depending on stage and extent of the disease
CT scan of brain and eyes
Yes i understood that the metal plate was just put temporarily to protect your eyes from radiation
But since you are having repeated eye infections and also headache and some ares resemble moles biopsy test is necessary
Ciprofloxacin eye drop will protect you from repeated eye infections
For headache you can take paracetamol 1 gm tablet
Also do CT scan of brain and eyes
