I have 6 more weeks of Adriamyacin to go before a bilateral mastectomy. Most of the docs on the team at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance think a full node dissection is in order on the left. One of them thinks I could get away with not. I had 8 clear nodes removed on the left before, 2 on the right. The people on the lymphadema board are struggling so with that condition. As it is I will already have to wear the compression sleeve when I fly (I am a flight attendant). I could use some direction as to research in this area. Anybody out there decide against the dissection?
