I have T3N1 Stage III melanoma of the arm, and have had it removed, with two sentinel lymph nodes, one positive. I am being told to have all my lymph nodes under arm removed. My question is, has anyone out there refused this procedure, and what is the outcome? And how do you handle the lymphedema that I already have with just two nodes removed?
