Brain Op Scar

I thought I might be scared or embarrassed if others saw the brain tumor operation scars on my forehead.  Nope, I am proud of them!  You can see in the photos that there are two scars.  The top one is from the cut into the skin; the second one, closer to my left ear, is where the skull was opened.  That surgery made a lot of changes in my head, but good ones.  I feel like I am getting even closer to be myself again.

I also have to say that Dr. Etame, who took out the majority of the tumor, did a great job with his slicing.  I believe he used the spot where I part my hair — he kept it simple!!

Here are some self-portraits to show off my scars:
