    Oh No (Problem with doctor): Doctor tells me my SNB showed no evidenence of lymph node involvment. Should be good news. 3 weeks later I find out from my onclogist that the SNB did not extract lymph node tissue, but salivary gland tissue, so there is no way of knowing if lymph nodes are involved.

    Procedure or Surgery (Wide excision surgery): The WES went well, doctor did a great job of blending in the incision with my facial (laugh) lines. The SNB did not go as well, much more pain and swelling.
