A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

Lymph Nodes


Here is some more cancer info, this time about lymph nodes. I just looked into it a bit more and found an article I will paste below my comments.

I know the surgeon took out the right sentinel lymph node and two others for examination when I had the second surgery done for cancer in the right breast. The first operation was a lumpectomy, I believe, and the second was a segmental mastectomy.

The nodes they removed and examined were found to be negative for cancer. I’m glad it stopped there at the three they took, because I understand those lymph nodes are very important cancer “filters”. My surgeon said that they used to remove them all but they no longer do so…..I believe that’s a good thing.

I wish I had known to ask many more questions about my cancer before anything at all was done. I wish I had done the research. I know I was pretty scared, as most are, and just figured the doctors knew best. They do consult, but I lacked knowledge.

I prayed for them, all involved in my case, to be given much wisdom and direction. That was the best I could do. I’ve learned much more about cancer AFTER the fact.
I hope that everyone will do their homework around this disease and be able to make knowledgeable decisions if and when the time comes….

    I agree completely. I found out a lot before my surgery, I was afraid the surgeon and other doctors would think I was a nuisance with my questions. Not at all. They found it refreshing…well, that’s what they told me.
