    Sentinel lymph node biopsy

    Procedure or Surgery

    Had a sentinel lymph node biopsy on 8/8 during BMX to determine if cancer had spread to lymphnodes (2 sentinel nodes and 1 non-sentinel node were taken for testing). Upon initial testing, lymphnodes came back negative for cancer cells therefore none were removed during surgery.

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