    Procedure or Surgery

    I was in a German hospital in 1974. The first week was to do extensive diagnostics and the second week was for recovery. I was assured they excised the entire mass with clean borders but needed monitoring every 3 months for 5 years. It is 40 years later and now I am having positive paps for VAIN.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Agree
