    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    Recovery typically takes a couple of months but this time since radiation therapy was administered before the surgery, it's taking longer to heel. Can only walk limited amount of time but can do things around the house without too much problem.

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

    External radiation

    Radiation

    Radiation therapy was administered but the wound wasn't completely healed so it was burning the skin. Had to stop at 15 treatments instead of the standard 25.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA

    Body part/function

    Loss

    A large portion of soft tissue was removed from the right upper thigh so it's not debilitating but might limp for the rest of my life.
