I'm going under on Friday to have all right underarm nodes removed after my sentinel node was positive for spitzoid cells. What can I expect? I know I'll have a drain. Sorry for the vague/general question, but all I can find are lymphadema & other horror stories via Google. Anyone care to share their experience?
How does recovery compare to wide-excision + SLNB? I only rested for 3 days after that one, although my incisions are still sore 3 months later.
Also, I am supposed to fly in mid-June... will that be safe? I'll ask my doc of course... just curious now.
