    Oh No

    I was totally thrown for a loop. I couldn't stop crying and was in massive denial. It was a very difficult time for me.

    Procedure or Surgery

    Now I have to have a second surgery to remove my lymph nodes in left arm pit. It has been very frustrating because I have waited a month and now I have shingles!!! Being postponed again and my doctor goes on vacation for two weeks! I am besides myself! I am hoping that another surgeon can do the operation so that I can get it over with. Been a nightmare!
