Now I have to have a second surgery to remove my lymph nodes in left arm pit. It has been very frustrating because I have waited a month and now I have shingles!!! Being postponed again and my doctor goes on vacation for two weeks! I am besides myself! I am hoping that another surgeon can do the operation so that I can get it over with. Been a nightmare!

    Oh no, Hang in there!!! I just had my 2nd surgery a month ago for my lymph node and still tender in my armpit area. I don't know about how other recover from the surgery but mine was at times very sore and restless night but once the drainage bag was remove things got better.
