Does this seem weird? Health related, NBR

DH had a mole on the back of his hand removed last week. Biopsy came back, it is benign, but the Dr. Didn't get all of it out, so he has to go back in to have more taken out. The Doctor wants to do IV conscious sedation to removed it. Similar to what you get when you have wisdom teeth removed. I think it's weird being that c sections and knee replacements, among many other surgeries, can be done with a nerve block or local anesthetic of some sort.

He just texted me that it's in an OR, so they should monitor his oxygen levels, which is my primary concern. It is SO annoying that I am a nurse, and DH refuses to let me go to Doctor visits with him. Any opinions?

  • Sil had a a few moles removed a couple months back. They wanted to get more of one spot out so she went back the next week. She was awake the entire time. She said it was painful and that she didn't expect it to be as bad as it was. I would also question it..but it could just be the doctors preference.

    I don't really

  • I have no idea what the norm would be, but I'm glad you guys at least know it's benign.

  • Could be really deep and they want the safety of an uncon. Non mobile child, pluss less trauma. I would do it personally, but I also have a ton of moles I wish we're removed when I was little. You could always get a second opinion if you are nervous.
