    Procedure or Surgery (Mastectomy): The surgery was not as bad as I thougt it would be. I had alot more pain in my armpit where my lymph nodes where removed. It took awhile to look at the surgical site. I had cald it the evil boob and disowed it before surgery, so it was easier to have the mastectomy. I wanted the surgeon to do a double mastectomy, but I was so anemic from the chemo, she said it would be harder to recover.
