Yeahhh!!! No lymph nodes removed, so no drains! The tumor was 3 cm as we initially expected so there were absolutely no surprises. The initial Sentinel Node biopsy was clear so there was no need to go further with node biopsies.
I'm home, sitting in my recliner, drinking everything in site. Not sure if it's the morphine they gave me or the anesthesia or general lack of fluids but I am really, really thirsty. So I'll just keep on drinking...or go a second round with watermelon tonight. I have not experienced any nausea (thank you Patch), I don't have much pain (we'll see how that goes later this evening - I'll have Vicodin on hand) and I am going to sit back and rest with ice packs, my best friends!
The pathologist is going to retest my ER/PR status as it was a bit ambiguous from the initial biopsy. Want to see something a little more definitive than "weakly positive".
I am a happy camper!
