    So my surgeon took out all the lymph nodes under my right arm. 4 of them had cancer. I really didn't like the drain bag. And it seemed to take forever until I could get it out. My sister and friends helped me each day. I was thrilled that I was finally able to get it out just in time to fly to St. Thomas to spend a great vacation with friends. It was a wonderful time together. The local drink, by the way, is called "The Painkiller".
