    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): My thyroid was goitering, total removal due to that and it was pushing my esophagus over and was having issues on swallowing. After removal they found to nodules with cancer that had not spread.

    Procedure or Surgery (Full lymph node dissection): My Melanoma reappeared in 6 lymph nodes in my left armpit area. Had all nodes removed, recovery is fairly ok, but slow, and extremely sensitive in around the whole area. Due to extent of trauma to the area have limited range of arm, so starting therapy. Plus Lymphadema.

      Its actually not that bad, was for me cause the biopsy was basically a surgery then a week later go back in same spot and do the removals. Little tender and muscles in armpit tight, and little lymphedema but having the drain in was more of a hassle then the tenderness

      Its not fun, alot of scaring and with that all tendons and muscles tighten up so reall no use of the arm above a 45 so holding something up over my head forget it.

      The risk of Full lymph node lead to lost or decreased sensation in the back of the arm or armpit. Sometimes the nerve supplying sensation to the back of the arm and armpit is cut, stretched, or damaged during surgery. This loss of sensation may be temporary, but for some women it may persist.
