I have three questions about recurrences in a WLE scar (on the thigh in this case).
1) When they redo the WLE, do they look at the depth of the recurrence and restage if necessary or does your staging stay the way it was?
2) Do they automatically check your lymph nodes even if they aren't swollen?
3) How is healing from a second WLE different from healing from the original? I had a tough time healing from the original with an infection, ripped internal stitches, and just generally slow healing. I'd like to know what to expect with a second one.
Thank you for any information you can give me!
