I have had a lumpectomy to remove a small lump but have got to have another
lumpectomy for pre-cancerous cells next Thursday. I had the choice of
either having an auxiliary clearance or radiotherapy. I have opted for the radiotherapy
as it seemed rather drastic to have all the lymph nodes removed.
I had a lumpectomy for pre cancerous cells with two small areas of microinvasion but did not have any lymph nodes removed, so they do not always remove any. It must all depend on how high the risk of it having spread is.
Hi, I am nearly 3 weeks post lumpectomy. The op itself isn't too bad, about an hour in theatre. I had mine at 4pm and was leaving hospital at 7.30pm. I was last in :(. Next day I felt fine, but then I had an ifection and over the days a build up of seroma so had to have it drained a couple of times. But speaking ot the other ladies everyone else had no problems so I must of been the unlucky one!! My lymph node biopsy has been the most painful, I wasn't expecting that. the good thing is my scar is underneath my boob so no one will see it. 😄
