    Procedure or Surgery (Sentinel lymph node biopsy): Taking out 2 nodes was so much more painful than the lumpectomy. Side effect a nerve trigger point was impacted. Still at 3 weeks later I have severe nerve pain in my arm and shoulder. Devastating unresolvable pain.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): Not as bad as I had built up in my head.
