Nine weeks post-op

Here we are, nine weeks since my Mohs surgery to remove that danged basal cell carcinoma from my nose.
It has healed very well, I'm told.
I suppose I agree, somewhat.
It apparently is a lot more noticeable to me than it is to the outside world.
I look in the mirror and see a very red blotchy wrinkled mess of a nose.
Everyone who looks at it comments that they can barely notice it.
You be the judge.
The scar from my hip surgery is barely noticeable to me yet it shows up in photos like an almost angry red incision, still a long way from what it will be.
Yet my nose, which to me looks very obvious, photographs as barely noticeable.
Funny that.
I'll assume that the healing process continues.
