Lumpectomy Surgeries

What Lumpectomy Surgery Cancer Survivors said about their Cancer Surgeries.

had surgery to remove lump and some lymph nodes early march 2011,then had second op mid march to remove more cells as it was on the borderline from previous op,recovered well from both surgeries

Lumpectomy after surgery, lymph node removal on 9/10/11, not much pain
9/7/2011 Double Mastectomy with immediate reconstruct using tissue expanders. My side effects have just been pain really
April 11, 2008 - lumpectomy. Other than slight soreness and tenderness, I felt great after my lumpectomy and had little pain. I found it enormously annoying that I couldn't shower without wrapping it in Saran wrap, couldn't lift anything, do much, and couldn't drive, but I felt good and didn't have to use pain medication. The only weird thing was that my right nipple was pointed to the right of my body (rather than facing front) and appeared to be dented and creased, which took some getting used to. Today my breast looks more normal, but it is still slightly creased and dented. The breast is smaller and I have to wear padded underwire bras for symmetry, but at least my nipple is facing front again! On December 11,2008 I had to have a total and complete hysterectomy since the cancer was hormonally driven. Since I could not take Tamoxifen or Arimedex as they are potent hormone/antihormone drugs and could give me a recurrence, a hysterectomy was my only option. I had it done via the DaVinci robot at Sloan Kettering...it was a Laparoscopic Vaginal hysterectomy. Physically I was tired at first, but I actually felt great...I was pain free for the first time in 40 + years. But hormonally and mentally? I was a wreck for a long time, especially since I was estrogen dominant and my estrogen levels were far higher than those of other women in menopause. It lasted for a year plus and threw me into a devastating depression (mixed with major anger) for almost 3 years.
Drainage tubes suck. If you have lymph nodes remove, begin immediately to stretch out the arm and side of removal. Yoga is wonderful for this.
Breast cancer No. 1. Surgery left me with some lymph oedema in the left arm, but the exercises helped and this is now barely noticeable. Leiomyosarcoma 2009: Can still sometimes feel the 'join' where my guts were resectioned and this can be a little uncomfortable. Breast cancer No. 2 2011: The nature of the reconstruction made it really hard to stand straight for about 3 months after the op. Also a tiny part of the new boob 'died' as it lost its blood supply temporarily - its taken 6 months to heal fully but is ok now.
First surgery on 6.28.11 didn't obtain clean margins so a re-excision was made on 7.8.11. I got a MRSA infection which landed me in the hospital for five days in September and later, 10.14.11 my surgeron reopened me to clean out the incision and I was sent home with a wound vac (and home care nurses 3 x a week). Wound vac was ended on 12.21.11 but open incision of about 1" x 1" remained. Still healing as of 3.4.12 but oh, so much better.
