Went in for laproscopic surgery to remove tumor, biopsy lymphnodes and do re section. They sent tumor to pathology while I was in OR and wound up have to do an abdominal incision and take 10 more lymph nodes (total of 13). My Dr had told me in preop that depending on what he found while in there he my have to make full incision. So I knew it was possible but based on CT he had done although it was malignant it was small. Wound up appearing smaller BC part was hidden in muscle tissue and all.
