Lumpectomy - novastorm

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

Surgery came after chemo. I opted for a lumpectomy. During surgery an additional 10 lymph nodes were taken. The biggest issue for me was the drains. From the beginning, one of the drains got clogged, and I developed a hematoma which needed to be surgically removed. After surgery, it was discovered that completely clean margins had not been obtained. So I went back for a third time to remove a bit more. Clean margins!
