    Has anyone experienced a gallbladder, lymph node, liver resection?

    I'd like to know what the recovery is like from this major surgery.

      On October 29th I will have a small part of my liver and all the lymph nodes removed and sent to the Pathologist to check for cancer. That will determine what stage the cancer is and what treatment I will need. I asked my surgical oncologist what the recovery would be like. He told me it would be similar to getting my gall bladder removed 6 weeks ago. My cancer was discovered when they removed my gall bladder. The first week I had a lot of pain and needed help with getting up to the bathroom, help with my bath. Each day I felt a little better, and could get up easier. I hope we can keep in touch! :)
