Now that my treatments are finished (YAY!!!), I have a resection scheduled for August 7th. The tumor is in my left thigh and the surgeon said it should be quite simple and done as an outpatient surgery.

    That's what I had done plus a lymphectomy of mynledt groin. The cancer had spread to lymphnodes which meant inpatient surgery. Blessings and wishing you a great outcome!

    I had a similar quickie surgery on my buttocks once. The spot wasn't very deep inside, so they just made me snooze, cut it out, and I slept away the rest of the afternoon, and went home that night, and had a nice Christmas two days later! I hope yours is a easy peasy.
