    Lumpectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I am very happy with the results of my surgery. I have a very good surgeon who made a really neat incision and I had a couple of uncomfortable days but that was all. It was Cancer .

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Agree

    Axillary Lymph Node Dissection

    Procedure or Surgery

    Yesterday I had the surgery to clip the Lymph nodes . They will be sent off to find out if they are Cancerous .I had a PET scan on Monday.I will call Friday to get the results but the Doctor said it looked "Good". I feel sore but the Doctor said he had to fish around to find them as they were very deep. The incision for this is larger than the Lumpectomy.When they get the results then that will determine if I am to get Radiation or Chemo. They are leaning towards Radiation. Does anyone have any tips to help the Radiation go smoothly? I am afraid I will be burned!

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