    Decision Point (ALDN or Radiation): Since sentinel nodes were positive needed to decide if I should have an axiliary node dissection or just treat the area with radiation. Studies show radiation is as effective in my case and ALND has issues with lymphedema.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): all clinical testing showed no node involvement, yet the SLND revealed cancer in 3/3 sentinel nodes!
