A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
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….
