    Oh No

    I don't feel sick. How can I have cancer?

    Procedure or Surgery

    Never had surgery before so I was nervous about it. Went around for about 1 week after surgery weak and in a fog. Woke up one day and felt like myself again. Also, found out I was ALLERGIC to the glue on steristrips put on over top of my incision. It itched and turned red, then blistered! Took those off early to get relief!

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
