Axillary Lymph Node Dissection - Saturday, August 06, 2016 4:36 PM
Was just told I would be having an Axillary Lymph Node Dissection during my upcoming surgery rather than sentinal node biopsy as I was originally told. Has anyone else had this procedure? I have not read anything positive about this procedure, that the recovery was long and painful and the long term risks and side effects are numerous and frequent.  Oncologist and surgeon have varying opinions on this and in the end I guess the surgeon wins as to which procedure it is going to be. He says node dissection. Another thing to scare me out of my mind. Thoughts please?
