    Procedure or Surgery

    Surgery is always scarey and my doctor was an hour and a half late for my lumpectomy. By the time I was wheeled into surgery, my blood pressure was over 180! Then they finally put me out. Next thing I knew I was breathing oxygen and it was over. There was minimal pain and recovery not bad. I did sleep for almost two days after the surgery but that was great.

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