    Lumpectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had a surgeon in whom I had complete confidence. Recovery was OK. Some difficulties with an abscess and underarm discomfort. Managed to keep daily life normal. I am retired so no jpb which helped.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Home care

    Other Care

    Nurse came daily to dress burns . She was always cheerful and smiling, did a great job and came about 8am so it left me the whole day free.

    Other Care

    I was picked up from my door, taken to the place for the appointment and delivered back home for all tests and daily while I was having rads. They were so nice, carried my bags etc and chatted if I wanted to. They are equipped for taking care of you if you have a problem and it helped so much as my husband and the dog stayed home and I could just relax and sit back.
