Lumpectomy - RitaE

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 10, 2012 View this journey (9 Experiences)

My surgery was painless and even when I awoke in the recovery room, my first question to the nurse was do I have a drain? The Dr. had prepared me that if it had spread to my lymph nodes they would remove them and I would have a drain. This was one of my biggest fears. So after hearing that I was thrilled and ready to go home!
