I'm new to the forums and just figuring how it all works.
I'm triple negativen and had a lumpectomy and total axillary clearance just over 3 weeks ago. After the results they cant be sure that they got all the pre-cancerous tissue so I am now looking at a 2nd op on 27th Dec for mastectomy. Given all the lpymphs have already been taken - I'm wondering whether they are likely to need a drain afterwards? Any thoughts?
Thank you XX
Thank you so much for the answer Narnia girl, and apologies I havent replied till now. Think in the blur I forgot to come back online to check. It went really well and I was out the day after. I did have a drain in but they were able to take it out quickly.
"Looking forward" to chemo starting on Monday now. Yikes!
Hope you recovery has gone well. Georgiex
