    Procedure or Surgery

    I went to Mayo Clinic to Dr. Fredric Meyer. He was wonderful. The surgery was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. I was very fortunate to not have any negative physical side effects, depsite him being very aggressive in the removal of the tumor plus a margin. I was very tired for three weeks after but had very minimal pain. The worst part was the itching of the incission as it healed.

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