  1. I am so thrilled to hear the sentinel node was negative. My worst memory of the surgery was radiology giving me those 5 injections for the sentinel test. I like you felt little discomfort after this surgery. One piece of advice if I may, if you feel tears just cry. I remember getting this overwhelming sense if sadness day 2 post-op and I couldn’t stop crying. I tried fighting it because I couldn’t figure out why all of a sudden this was happening. The surgery does so much to your hormones and it will take a while to level out. You didn’t mention drains….how many?!? I truly couldn’t be happier your nodes weren’t affected, with our diagnosis, it is such an important piece of the giant puzzle that us cancer. Please let me know if you need anything!!

    • Thanks, Jenn! I have 2 drains. And thanks for the advise. Right now I feel stable and happy to have it fine, but I know that can change at a moment’s notice. Thanks for being a part of my lifeline!!
