    Lumpectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I was filled with worry at first, after surgery I felt alittle better. waiting to hear if they got it all or not was another time of more worry for me, they did get the tumer out without a problem. but I knew there were still scatter cancer cells still in there. and I could not get that off of my mind.
